Anti-Bullying Week Nov 2017

December 7, 2017

We had a great time learning about how we are, ‘All Different, All Equal’ during Anti-Bullying week this year.

We are learning that we are all unique and special; just like the different ingredients used to make a cake or the different pieces of a puzzle, our classes and school are ‘lacking’ and ‘incomplete’ if anyone is missing.

Many of the children had the opportunity to listen to ‘Ben 401’ Smith when he visited Greenway. He suffered from bullying when he was at school and has run 401 consecutive marathons to raise awareness of bullying. He highlighted the importance of ‘telling’ someone you trust if you are being bullied and not to stay silent. This theme has been used in assemblies and encouraged throughout the school.

Our Anti-Bullying Poster, Poem and Rap competitions were again greeted with amazing enthusiasm from most pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2. Auditions took place over 3 afternoons and standards were incredibly high! A long time was taken looking through videos and posters before the winners could be awarded in assembly.

Well done to everyone who entered! You were inspirational!

 We completed the week by forming a circle round the school with all pupils and staff holding hands, as an illustration of our unity against bullying at Greenway School.
