Increasing the numbers of children reporting they feel safe in school
We up-dated the school behaviour policy to include up-to-date information and a section on anti-bullying. A worry box was made for upper KS2 so that children could seek support. Assemblies were held around the topic of E-Safety.
The school also re-issued ‘Safe Internet Use’ document for parents/pupils to sign and commit to. The School Council met and completed the BANES Anti-Bullying Charter. This has been shared with pupils to raise awareness around bullying and will go to governors so that the whole school community are involved in the school anti-bullying strategies.
During Health Week (June, 2014) classes carried out age-appropriate activities around the theme of anti-bullying and specifically in the older classes around the definition of bullying, the reasons and responses to bullying and where to get support.
Louise Stapleton, Youth Project Co-ordinator at B&NES Police was contacted and will support the E-Safety focus at the beginning of the year and run a parents meeting based around E-Safety including bullying.
