years’ theme

Staff and pupils at St Stephen’s Junior School were once again creative during Anti-bullying week

Last year classes voted for their Anti-bullying Ambassadors and throughout the year these pupils have a workshop on spotting the signs of bullying, report bullying to staff if they witness it, appear in a school video and present an assembly on bullying. The ambassadors work tirelessly and were recently rewarded with a visit to The Houses of Parliament in London. 

Mrs Millsted (Family Learning Manager) who organises the week of anti-bullying activities and supports the ambassadors explained;
“I’m passionate about helping our pupils to spot bullying and to speak out.  I was bullied and I know how much it can affect children to the point where they may not want to go to school.”

AB week Nov17aDuring the week all pupils were encouraged to enter a competition and design a poster on the theme “All different, All equal”.  The standard of entries was very high but winners include; Chelsea (age 10), Rosie (age 10), Rayyan (age 8) and Minerva (age 7).  Their posters are shown below and copies will be displayed around their Year groups. Each received an Art prize for their creative efforts.

Pupils were encouraged to support the week by supporting the national campaign from the Anti-Bullying Alliance and wear odd socks!

The work of the anti-bullying ambassadors is crucial at St Stephen’s to support the school’s anti-bullying policy. This week classes have voted in new ambassadors for the coming year, Mr Pywell (Head teacher) echoed his support for the week;

“We were very proud of our Ambassadors when we visited London and The Houses of Parliament recently.  We had the opportunity to meet our new local MP Rosie Duffield too which was a highlight for many of the children.”

Pupils in Year 5 & 6 can also complete Peer Mediation Training and support other pupils address fall outs and conflicts, which helps to prevent bullying. The week ended with an assembly on the theme “All different All equal” presented by Year 4 Pear class to parents.
