As part of the school’s ongoing campaign against bullying, and to mark National Anti-Bullying Week, Broadford Primary school in Faringdon Avenue has hosted a number of events in the last few weeks.

As well as the workshop, all pupils have been given blue Beat Bullying wristbands, which promote young people helping and supporting each other online.

Children in the reception classes have also been learning about the skills needed to be good friends, while Key Stage 2 classes have completed an additional workshop.

Bianca Taylor, pshce teacher, said: “We have promoted the use of social media as a positive communication tool. In their drama activities the older children had to demonstrate how new technologies can be used to promote this rather than letting cyber-bullying ruin the experience for them.”

The School Council also had to prepare a briefing for each class to reinforce the key messages for e-Safety and how they are important for preventing bullying.

Tobi Adelowo, 11, who is chair of the school council, said: “In our school we have three jobs. Turn up every day, do your best and be kind and polite. We need to make sure we are kind and polite when we use our phones and computers too.”

During National Anti-Bullying Week, which was November 18-22, the children also re-signed their anti-bullying behaviour contracts, took part in an anti-bullying assembly and completed some follow up activities in class.
