Peters Hill shouts ‘No!’ to bullying
If you visit the bustling playgrounds at Peters Hill, you’ll notice some new additions; dressed in stunning hi-viz jackets, they are our ‘Bully Busters’. Armed with only a clipboard and a listening ear, this team of fully trained children aim to support their peers experiencing friendship problems. Expertly trained in resilience and assertiveness by Lynda Kesterton, Dudley’s Anti-Bullying Coordinator, the ‘Bully Busters’ are part of the school’s work on tackling and reducing bullying.
A steering group, made up of teaching and non-teaching staff, parents and governors, is leading the school through an improvement process; this includes policy and procedural reviews, a curriculum review and training from the Anti-Bullying Alliance. You will see evidence of our work in regular anti-bullying assemblies, the anti-bullying films made with a local university, on our class blogs and Twitter feed, as well as in our learning environment. Exciting times as we work together in our school community to ensure the school is a safe and happy place for every single one of our children.
Since we began efforts to remove bullying we are pleased to announce that we have achieved the Anti-Bullying Alliance award.
We have also been awarded the Anti-Bullying Quality Mark Bronze Level Award.
Some of our pupils collaborating with students from Newman University have put together a great anti-bullying video that shows how damaging bullying can be.
There are some very helpful resources online that can give you some detailed information about bullying and what can be done to prevent it.
