Roydon Primary joins hands against bullying
Education: Primary / Mon 27th Nov 2017 at 03:31am
A whole school community have joined hands in a commitment against bullying.
Pupils at Roydon Primary Academy, in Roydon, spent Anti Bullying Week learning about what bullying looks like, how to spot it and what to do about it.
At the end of the week, every pupil and member of staff added their colourful handprint to a new piece of wall art in the school hall to show their commitment to the cause.
Michael Clark, head of school, said: “We wanted the week to culminate in a commitment to anti-bullying at Roydon. It is something we talk about with pupils a lot and the whole school community knows bullying of any kind will not be tolerated here.
“Every child and member of staff – including cleaners, teaching assistants and teachers – has added their print to the wall under the banner Take A Stand, Lend A Hand, Stop Bullying.
“Now, during every assembly they can be reminded of the commitment they have made.”
As new children join the school each year, more handprints will be added to the display.
