Next week marks National Anti-Bullying week in the UK and the theme this year is "Choose Respect" over bullying.
"Following a consultation with over 800 children, teachers and members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, it emerged that a top priority was showing that bullying is a behaviour choice, and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school, in their homes and communities, and online."
This theme will be incorporated into next weeks Secondary timetable during tutor times and visuals will be placed up around the school.
For information on how you can speak to your child about bullying please read this short article below and check out next weeks newsletter for more information on the activities that will take place next week.
