For part of anti bullying week (which we like to call Friendship Week), OpenView Education came in and performed a short show to Years 1,2,3 and 4. The message was about the importance of reaching out with kindness and showing respect to others. The show taught the children how to be a good friend and how we can use kindness to make our school an even better place.
For Year 5 and 6, they had individual workshops on social media, in particular looking at Whats App. The upper KS2 anti-bullying workshop included a scenario in which bullying starts and then progresses into unkind messages being sent via Whats App. Children were taught what to do in this situation, how to be assertive, how to resist peer pressure and how to stand up for someone . They were also taught the child line number - 0800 1111
