Anti-Bullying

Anti-bullying Week

This year’s theme for anti-bullying week was ‘Choose Respect’. At Parkhead we thought about how we can choose to use respect in our school. The week began with a whole school assembly to launch Anti-bullying week on the Monday. Each year group was given a different type of bullying such as verbal, physical, emotional and prejudice driven bullying to become experts in over the course of the week. On Wednesday we held a parent’s event where parent’s and carers were invited into school to complete an anti-bullying craft activity with their child based around the theme of respect. It was lovely to see so many families working alongside each other! On Cyberbullying day, a selection of our school Councillors went on a special visit to another local school where they took part in two workshops using the fabulous Now Press Play resource. They had the opportunity to experience two cyber-bullying themed audio experiences, which they loved. To close the week, we held a celebration assembly, which was an opportunity for each year group to showcase what they had learned over the week and how they had been using respect over bullying! We all then showed our unity against bullying by forming a giant circle on the school yard. It was a fabulous week and we would like to thank all of the families who came into school over the week to support the event.

We believe that each individual has the right to feel and be safe, to learn, and to be treated with respect and valued. Everyone at Parkhead Primary School has pledged to prevent all forms of bullying. We aim to create a safe, happy, stimulating environment for all our children. If problems of bullying so arise and satisfactory outcomes are to be achieved, then school and home must work together.
