Over the last two weeks we have reinforced with the children our anti-bullying message. We encourage our pupils to identify any repeated negative actions towards them (‘Several Times On Purpose = S.T.O.P.) and seek help immediately if they are unhappy about the conduct of others (‘Speak Out Straightaway’ = ‘S.O.S.’).
We have also reminded children of our postboxes where they can report any worries that they have. These boxes are emptied daily and relevant interventions put in place.
