As you know, during the week beginning 17th November the students and staff of Bishop Stopford’s school worked together to devise a week of events in support of the national anti bullying campaign.
Following the ideas put forward by the students themselves, the entire school took part in this venture. As well as tuck shops, peer mentoring schemes and anti bullying wrist bands, we also held a ‘Wear it Blue’ non uniform day on Friday 21st November in order to show our support for this worthy cause. An anti bullying poster competition was also launched at the start of the week and the winning entries are currently being professionally printed so that they can be displayed all around school. Copies of these posters are below.
This is the second year that we have run an in school campaign during anti-bullying week and in doing so we have managed to raise a combined total of just over £1,500. This money has been donated to Childline (NSPCC) and The Anti Bullying Alliance, organisations that work with young people and adults to offer advice and guidance regarding issues of bullying.
It was wonderful once again to see students across every year group coming together during this week and upholding our motto to ‘Stand Together and Beat Bullying’.
A huge thank you goes to all staff, students and parents who supported us during this fantastic and memorable week.
