We are delighted to announce we have been awarded the North Tyneside Anti Bullying Standards Award.
On the 26th February 2020 we were presented with our plaque and certificate from Julia Bradwell Participation worker from North Tyneside and William, the Young Cabinet Member for Anti-Bullying.
In order to meet the standards, we had to provide information about our policies, leadership, governance, staff involvement, curriculum, parental involvement, partnership working and E-Safety.
We enjoyed sharing information about our E-safety safety House Team event, anti-bullying weeks including assemblies for parents, Buddy system, School Council, Relaxation and check in points to promote health and wellbeing, yoga, Computing and PSHCE lessons and much more!
What is bullying?
Bullying is repeated behaviour that is intended to hurt someone physically or emotionally. Bullying can be face to face or online. We ensure that we explore and teach our children the importance of kindness and respect. Through our Child Friendly Anti Bullying policy we ensure children are aware of what bullying is and how to get Help. Healthy relationships are explored through our RSE and PSHCE curriculum every term. We celebrate Anti Bullying Week each year and hold an assembly for parents which is always well attended.
Our Anti Bullying sharing assembly was well attended by parents. Children from Foundation Stage to Year 6 talked about bullying and how to get help.
