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 to help promote friendships, celebrate differences and to raise awareness of the effects of bullying. Our aim was to make Woodsetton School a happy and safe place to be.
The Anti-Bullying committee completed training in January 2020 which was 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. Events in school were planned by our ambassadors and enjoyed by all……but then Covid 19 restrictions put a stop to all of our plans!
In April 2021, we relaunched the Anti-Bullying programme. Following advertisements and recruitment for the role, we now have 8 members of the team who meet with Mrs Harding on a fortnightly basis. Each member of our Anti-Bullying committee has been awarded with an Anti-Bullying badge so they can be easily recognised by other pupils who might need their support in and around school.
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.
REMEMBER - Bullying of any kind is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our school!
It is an exciting time for Woodsetton School…watch this space for an update on events that will be planned throughout the year!
If you are worried about bullying please tell someone and the school will do everything possible to support you!
