PUBLISHED: 11:00 18 November 2018
Roundwood Park School has run a number of activities for their Anti-Bullying Week.
This week Roundwood has been promoting National Anti-Bullying Week, which aims to raise awareness of bullying of young people, in and out of school.
Anti-bullying is an important movement within Roundwood Park School (RPS) as the RPS community will never tolerate bullying. Our school should be a safe space for all individuals to learn and grow.
We want to highlight the signs of bullying, in order to be better at recognizing and responding to it.
During Anti-Bullying Week, we are using odd socks and funky ties to raise awareness. Students have also been given the opportunity to literally lock in their pledge against bullying using padlocks; anti-bullying awareness has also been included in house assemblies.
We hope to spread awareness against bullying far and wide across our community!
This year, the theme of National Anti-bullying week is ‘Choose Respect’: this has inspired many fantastic posters around the school and a special book display in the library.
Choosing respect means respecting the diversity within our school and giving every person the right to express themselves without the fear of bullying.
The definition of respect is: ‘due regard for feelings, wishes, or rights of others’, according to the dictionary.
Every person has the right to respect in our community, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, religious beliefs or disability.
We want all young people in our community to feel as though they have someone to turn to in any instances of bullying, whether this is an adult they trust, a peer or new anti-bullying ambassador, or the Speakeasy website.
Roundwood Park has a zero-tolerance attitude towards bullying and will treat any cases of bullying with the utmost importance.
In the run up to National Anti-Bullying Week, house leaders across all year groups met with passionate staff and SLG members at a wellbeing and diversity conference, led by
Together, we are working on an updated version of the RPS anti-bullying policy, to make sure that this policy is as effective and relevant as possible.
Anti-bullying week is an important week to all in the RPS community. Together, we can take a stand against bullying in the hope of creating a kinder and safer community, where we all ‘Choose Respect.’
