Each student was given a United Against Bullying badge to show solidarity to the cause and displayed the badge with pride throughout the whole week. During assemblies, we explored the belief that is okay to be different, and celebrated this by wearing odd socks.
Students also took part in carefully tailored PSHE lessons, created by each teacher to suit their class and explored a wide range of topics, from cyber-bullying to how to act around school. We created a jigsaw pledge and thought of ways how we could play our part, unite together and work as a team to solve problems and differences together.
While Anti-Bullying Week has ended, we remain united against bullying.
