Anti Bullying

Anti-Bullying Week 2022

Anti-Bullying Week 2022 is coordinated in England and Wales by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. It will take place from 14 to 18 November 2022 and has the theme Reach Out. Further information on how we will be raising the profile of this week will be available soon. Information from the Anti-Bullying Alliance can be found here.

Anti Bullying Week 15th-19th November 2021- One Kind Word

We have spent every form time this week focusing on Anti Bullying Week and discussing what bullying is, what we can do if we see it happening and what we can do to reduce it. We have received advice from Mr Illsley as to how we can report online abuse which we know is an increasingly common way of people bullying others. Students have been thinking about the impact of kind words, how to be a safe upstander and today we all had a highly inspirational talk from Alex Holmes who made Her Majesty The Queen’s Young Leader in 2017 and represents the commonwealth for his work in tackling bullying.

Some of our student leadership team have worked incredibly hard at making our Anti-Bullying Policy into a student friendly one and this will be seen all over school and on our website very soon. A huge thank you to Mollie D, Lexi D, Izzy T and Freya H (all Y9).

Students were asked ‘What have you learnt from Anti Bullying Week?’

Some responses included:

  • “How to report bullying”
  • “Be kind , it’s not cool to be mean”

  • “ I have learnt that if you are being bullied or you think someone else is being bullied you shouldn’t keep it to yourself , always tell an adult that you trust and ask them for help”
  • “To help people who are being bullied. How to report it on apps and games”
  • “ One kind word has a big impact on someone’s mental health”
