Anti-bullying Week at Central

Anti-bullying week at Central Primary 

Every year at Central Primary School, we celebrate Anti-bullying week to show unity for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.

According to ABA (Anti-bullying Alliance),“kindness is more important today than it has ever been. The isolation of the last year has underlined how little acts of consideration can break down barriers and brighten the lives of the people around us” and we couldn’t agree more with this statement. 

At Central Primary we actively promote Kindness through one of our Learning SuperHeros, Kam.
Last week, more than other weeks, we wanted to show that:

  • we can be kind like Kam
  • we understand how bullying makes others feel
  • we can report bullying and ask for help at anytime
  • we know how to stop bullying

 

We created our own chain of kindness to share not just #OneKindWord, but many.

Together, we watched an educational BBC live session which highlighted some of the issues around bullying and the support available. 

We discussed the importance of RESPECT and how this can affect others thoughts and feelings; we know that everyone, including ourselves, should expect to be treated politely and with respect by others in school and in wider society. 

Be a defender, not a bully” , “Stop Bullying”, “Be a buddy, not a bully” and “Be Kind” were just a few messages we wanted to spread in our community.

We proudly wore odd socks on the first day of Anti-bullying week to show our uniqueness and our acceptance of individual differences.  

We will continue to promote acts of kindness at Central Primary School and have a positive attitude towards others because…

One Kind Word can change the world!!!
