To coincide with Anti-Bullying Week we have launched the latest phase of the LiFE MAT ‘It’s Not Ok!’ Campaign.
When addressing incidents of bullying, it is essential that we focus on how we deal with both the perpetrators and victims. We have focussed on anti-bullying in this week’s assembly and will have follow up activities in tutor times next week. Therefore there is no assembly next week.
Information from the Anti-Bullying Alliance:
It is most important to remember that bullying is a barrier to learning, can seriously affect a victim's mental health and can change the way they feel about themselves well into their adulthood. Research shows that the long-term impact of bullying on a victim greatly increases if the bullying continues over a long period of time.
We take a zero-tolerance approach to bullying at our school. This half term, we will be carrying out a number of activities in addition to our normal safeguarding practice which will include registration activities with students, discussions with students, surveys, reviewing our practice and additional assemblies. Please look out for further updates on this campaign throughout the year and we encourage you to talk to your children about these issues at home.
