Anti Bullying

Our Anti Bullying Curriculum

At St Hild's, anti bullying is an important part of our PSHCE curriculum and it is covered regularly in all classes throughout school.

Every term we have an anti bullying afternoon dedicated to an aspect of bullying. This could include cyber bullying, what bullying is, who can help us if we experience bullying or other forms of bullying. Each class present their work in the hall to end the afternoon. Parents are invited into school to take part in our anti bullying events throughout the year.

 

As well as our PSHCE lessons, Years 5 and 6 work with trained leaders from Childline. They come into school every two years to discuss different forms of bullying and provide our oldest children in school with information and advice to support them as they prepare to move into secondary school. These sessions are held during a half term and they are followed up throughout the year by staff in school.

 

We have several groups of children in school who have been trained to support others.

Buddies

In Key Stage One, we have a group of Mini Buds who are chosen from Year 2. These children help other children in the Infants to find friends at playtimes and lunchtimes. After completing their training during the Autumn Term, they deliver an assembly to the Infants so everyone knows who they are and what their job is. They help to sort out problems and disagreements and they are role models for the other children. They wear red caps when they are on duty so they are easy to spot.

Smiles

We have two Smiles in every class. These children are trained to help children who join our school. It can be very scary to come to a new school and our smiles help our new friends to settle into their new class. They show them around the school and help them to find things. They help new children to become familiar with our school routines and help them to join in games and make new friends within their class.

Lunchtime Clubs

Mrs Jones and Mrs White run lunchtime clubs. They prepare lots of exciting activities and children can choose to come inside at lunchtime if they would like to take part.

 

We have a worry box in school where children can post notes if something is worrying them. Our staff are always available if children would like to talk about anything that is worrying them or making them feel sad. Siobhan, our Positive Futures Worker, is also available in school to speak to children who may need to talk.

 

Our support staff run several groups during the week to develop our thinking skills and our social and emotional skills. We have Getting Along groups, Socially Speaking groups, Time to Talk groups and Listening Skills groups. Our support staff have also completed Relax Kids training and Zippy training.

 

Children's Anti Bullying Policy

Every year during the Autumn Term, each class review our children's anti bullying policy to make sure it is up to date. We talk about the key messages in the policy and discuss their importance. Click here to read our children's anti bullying policy.
