All Together - Anti Bullying
Working Together To Keep Everybody Happy
At Berry Hill Primary School we take great pride in ensuring children feel safe and happy. To enable this to happen we have lots of policies and procedures in place. One of the ways we keep children safe is through teaching children about bullying and the effects it can have.
The Anti-Bullying Alliance defines bullying as…
The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or online.
As a school, we always encourage children to tell an adult if they have any concerns about bullying. If they do not feel they can tell someone they can write a worry down and use our worry boxes. Every classroom has their own worry box. Additionally, we also have a specific bullying worry box located on the Anti-Bullying display outside year 6 classrooms. Alternatively you could use the form below to report any concerns to school. Please ensure you put your child’s full name, class and details about any concerns.
This year, Anti-Bullying week runs from MONDAY 16th to FRIDAY 20th NOVEMBER and this year’s theme is
‘UNITED AGAINST BULLYING’.
We will be planning lots of activities for the children to take part in to encourage them to choose to take care of others and to show how everyone at Berry Hill Primary School is united against bullying!
Our anti-bullying focus will start on FRIDAY 13th NOVEMBER with #WearBlue4Wellbeing day and will then continue on MONDAY 16th NOVEMBER with ODD SOCKS DAY!!!
We will be ending Anti-bullying Week by taking part in Friendship Friday on Friday 20th November
Here are some links for information about bullying for parents and carers
We all love Odd Socks Day at Berry Hill Primary School, and one of the best things about it is finding out what the new song will be each year!
Here are the links to all of the songs that Andy and the Odd Socks have made to support Anti-bullying Week since Odd Socks Day started
Odd Socks Day 16.11.20
It looked a little bit like we’d all got dressed in the dark today…but there was a very good reason for us wearing our odd socks!
We have been doing lots for anti-bullying week and wearing our odd socks for the day was part of our themed week. Our odd socks helped us to show that we’re all unique, different and we don’t all have to match one another. It’s ok for us all to be different.
