Anti-Bullying Week at Hammond School

Over an extended period of two weeks this November, Hammond School has taken part in the national Anti-Bullying Week.

On Monday 20th November, pupils enjoyed Anti-Bullying workshops run by 'Gripping Yarns' focusing on the following topics:

  • Year 3: Carrying out as many acts of kindness as possible
  • Year 4: Creating a class list of acts of kindness and working as a class to complete as many as possible
  • Year 5: Looking at what bullying looks like and discussing strategies to overcome bullying
  • Year 6: Looking at how bullying is subtly portrayed in films, TV and computer games.

Over the past year especially, the school, together with Lightwater Village School, has been very focused on consolidating on and further improving the Anti-Bullying initiatives and approaches. For 2017-18 this is a focus of the School Development Plan and to date, Miss Mankelow has led the following efforts: 

· Reviewed and reissued our Anti-Bullying policy which is available on our website

· Produced a new parent leaflet (already distributed via ParentMail and available on our website)

· Produced a new pupil leaflet (distributed this week via ParentMail and given to all pupils in hard copy)

· Written a new Anti-Bullying Code which Mrs Evans, the governors and all pupils are signing next week

· Planning and soon to launch a new Drop-In Surgery for parents to come in and speak to a teacher in confidence about any incidents in school they are concerned about.

We have also recently launched a new section of our website 'For Pupils' which has a range of resources and information for our children to access both in school and at home should they need help and advice. Furthermore, to complement this effort, our E-Safety curriculum has been renewed and is available to view here.
