Anti-Bullying Week 2018: ‘We Choose Respect!’

Anti BullyingwLast week Stanborough marked National Anti-Bullying week across the school.

The Anti-Bullying Alliance ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ took place between the 12th and 16th November 2018. The theme this year was “We Choose Respect” with the following key aims:

  • The definition of respect
  • That bullying is a behaviour choice
  • That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
  • That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online

During Anti-Bullying Week, students were involved in a variety of different activities in IT & Computing lessons such as an anti-bullying video and creating anti-bullying badges. They also took part in house events such as the Wristband Challenge where Year 7 students were given wristbands to support the Anti-Bullying campaign around the school. They had to collect stamps each day, whilst wearing their Anti-Bullying wristband. An Anti-Bullying quiz was also carried out during the week in tutor time.

The house competition results are:

Thank you to all the students and staff that participated in the event. This event was a great success and I hope it has sent an important message out to all students.
