This week is about raising awareness in keeping children and young people feeling safe and we have been taking part in this national week. In assembly we have been reminding our children what to do if they are worried about something and in class we will be reminding children what they can do if they feel they are being bullied or know another child is unhappy. We also planned additional circle times.
We welcomed the Police E-Safety Team into the school during Anti-Bullying Week to deliver workshops to our Years 3-6. Each class had a workshop.
Take a look at each class page to see how they took part in Anti-Bullying Week.
