At Longmoor we don’t want anyone to be a victim of Bullying. As part of our PSHE curriculum and through recognising the annual National Anti-Bullying Week we work hard to help the children understand issues surrounding Bullying. If you feel that you are being bullied, the best thing to do is to tell someone so that they can help you.
At School you can tell…
- A friend
- A teacher
- A lunchtime supervisor
- The Headteacher
- A playground Pal
When you tell someone about Bullying, they can then help you to sort your problem out.
So what is bullying?
Bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group. Bullying can be verbal, physical or psychological. Bullying can happen face to face or through cyberspace.
Anti- Bullying Week: 14th - 18th November 2016
In November 2016, Longmoor Primary School took part in the National Anti-Bullying week, this year the theme of the campaign was called 'Power for good'. To kick start the week Anti-Bullying workshops for KS1 and KS2 took place, which were delievred by Rob Bounds, who has written a number of children's books all about celebrating differences and diversity. At the end of the day, Year 6 pupils shared their Anti-Bullying stories with the rest of the school. During the week, the children completed a range of Anti-Bullying activities, some of which were completed with parents in our parent open mornings.
At Longmoor Primary School we run a successful peer mentoring scheme called Playground Pals.
Every lunchtime, trained Year 6 pupils are on duty on our playgrounds, helping the children at Longmoor to make the most of their lunchtime experiences.
The Playground Pals help all of the children at Longmoor to get along with each other and to enjoy playing games at lunchtime.
Every week the Playground Pals meet with their co-ordinator to vote for a pupil who has impressed them.
The Playground Pals Award is given out at our weekly Celebration Assembly.
At Longmoor we encourage all our children to adopt healthy lifestyles. We deliver 2 hours physical activity each week. Alongside this we encourage all children to drink water in class, have a good breakfast every day, give free fruit to all infant children and offer a healthy hot lunch prepared in our own kitchen.
We work closely with a variety of agencies to deliver health messages as part of our curriculum.
We have received the Healthy Schools Award.
Our aim is to support children and young people to grow healthily, safely and responsibly and to become active citizens who do their bit for society and for the environment.
