Anti-Bullying

2020 Anti-Bullying

Still image for this video
The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2020 is: United Against Bullying. Anti-Bullying Week will happen from Monday 16th - Friday 20th November

At Ordsall Primary School we had planned for the new RHE/RSHE Curriculum to be up and running in September 2020, which was the timeline that schools received from the government. As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic this expectation was changed and, in the guidance for schools following the pandemic, schools were asked to have this in place by the summer of 2021. At Ordsall Primary School we are proud to have begun much of this work already during the 2019/20 academic year and, as a result, we have made a lot of progress in this for the start of September 2020. The school is very clear on how it will teach this new curriculum and the outcomes it wants to achieve. One example is our Anti-bullying work which fits in with this curriculum as part of looking at Healthy Relationships and our work on Equalities, Online Safety and Health and Wellbeing.  To find out more about our new policy for the RHE/RSHE Curriculum please click here 

 

 

 

At Ordsall Primary School we take any form of bullying very seriously. We deal with bullying in many different ways as part of our PSHE curriculum, our assemblies and through the Anti-bullying and internet safety days that occur during the year. 

 

Below are some resources that you may find helpful that we use in school.

BBC Bitesize-

3  clips

  1. From Bully to best friend - A young girl who was being bullied by her friend explains how eventually she found the courage to confide in a teacher and how the situation was dealt with. Since then the bully has seen the error of her ways and as a result is now a friendly, pleasant and polite person who everybody likes.
  2. Playground buddies - This report introduces us to playground buddies whose job it is to make sure all children are involved in playtime and to try to solve any problems pupils may have. It also shows how massage in the classroom, accompanied by soft music and pictures, can relieve tension in the children when they go out onto the playground. Finally, we are introduced to mediators, children who volunteer for the task of being the sounding board for any problems children may have. Children often prefer this to confiding in a teacher.
  3. What is a bully -Several children provide an introduction to bullying. There are two types of bullying - emotional bullying (excluding people and unkind remarks) and physical bullying (violence). The children explain the effects of bullying on them and how it makes them feel.

Our definition of bullying comes from the Anti-Bullying Alliance and is....

"The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or through cyberspace."

Anti-Bullying Alliance definition of bullying

Here you will find the Ant-Bullying Alliance definition. ABA defines bullying as the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or through cyberspace.

What do we mean by an imbalance of power in bullying?

The Anti-Bullying Alliance defines bullying as ... the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can happen face to face or through cyberspace. This short clip shows Lauren Seager-Smith - National Coordinator at the Anti-Bullying Alliance - describing what we mean by 'an imbalance of power'.

 

Anti-Bullying Week

The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2019 was ‘Change Starts With Us.’ In year groups we discussed the definition of bullying, how to prevent bullying and how to respond if we feel we are being bullied. It connected to our work with the NSPCC on "Speak Out, Stay Safe" and the workshop that we ran for parents and individual year groups.

 

We also identified people who we could talk if we have any worries or concerns.  We concluded the week with a class message about our thoughts and feelings on bullying. If we all make a positive change, we can all make a difference.

 

The Anti-Bullying Alliance provided us with many different resources and if you would like to see more of the resources available please go to https://www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/anti-bullying-week/anti-bullying-week-2019-change-starts-us
