Young people having the power to change the world
“Woodsetton School is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of its pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Pupils have the right to access all aspects of school life without the fear of being bullied and that all pupils and staff recognise the impact bullying can have.”
In September 2019 Woodsetton School created an Anti-Bullying committee made up of 9 members, 6 Anti-Bulling ambassadors and 3Anti-Bullying leaders.
The Anti-Bullying committee completed training in January which is recognised by The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign. This training helped to equip our young people with the skills and knowledge needed to promote friendships, celebrate differences and become more aware of ways to help keep their peers safe both online and offline.
Each member of our Anti-Bullying committee has been awarded with Anti-Bullying badges and yellow Anti-Bullying bibs so they can be easily recognised by other pupils who might need their support in and around school.
Since September our members have been very busy. As a result of feedback from our meetings and through pupil interviews we now have 5 lunchtime clubs that have proved to be a great success. We have also had a visiting theatre group deliver a presentation on Anti-Bullying that included famous characters such as Spiderman, Caption America and The Queen of Hearts.
Our committee has recently completed a fund raising activity and raised money to purchase new playtime equipment. Following a research session they have identified equipment and pupils now have playtime boxes to use each day on the playground or in the school hall.
We have a fun filled year ahead planned with assemblies, fun sessions, workshops and much more!
Preventing and tackling bullying is part of our work to support pupils’ social and emotional development and to be recognised as a healthy school. Our Anti-Bullying policy can be found on the school website.
Bullying of any kind is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our school.
If you are worried about bullying please tell someone and the school will do everything possible to support you!
