Hall Cliffe School
Pupils from Hall Cliffe School celebrated by creating meaningful posters using anti-bullying slogans and enjoyed designing their own socks for Odd Socks Day. It's an opportunity for children and young people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and explore what makes us all unique.
The school prides itself on having a no bullying policy, and pupils have pledged this will last a lifetime, with one pupil commenting:
"Bullying is not right, it shouldn't happen, it doesn't make me feel nice when I see this happening. I want to make this my mission to stop it from happening all over the world."
The Grange Learning Centre
At The Grange Learning Centre, to prepare the week, they gathered votes for the Anti-Bullying Alliance School Staff Awards.
As part of this topic, pupils were asked to nominate a staff member who they felt consistently went above and beyond in raising awareness of bullying within their setting. Votes were counted, and the staff member receiving the most votes was Pastoral Manager, Emily Byrne.
On receiving this information, they were asked why they thought Emily deserved this award. One pupil commented:
"She always makes sure bullying is sorted. I know I am safe at school and I can talk to her if I am worried about bullying."
They also celebrated Odd Socks Day by taking part in The Big Anti-bullying Assembly, where they decorated odd socks with anti-bullying slogans, posted letters of positivity and engaged in various other activities from the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
The week was celebrated with great enthusiasm, helping everyone to recognise the importance of being kind and supportive to one another.
Great work everyone!
