At Longmoor we don’t want anyone to be a victim of Bullying. We understand that Bullying can have a profound affect on children's emotional well-being and mental health and Bullying will not be tolerated at our school. As part of our PSHE curriculum (Jigsaw), our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors 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, please tell an adult straight away.
At School you can tell…
- A friend
- A teacher
- A teaching assistant
- Anti-Bullying Ambassador
- A lunchtime supervisor
- The Headteacher
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, psychological and online. Bullying is not tolerated at our school.
Anti Bullying Ambassadors
In October 2022, a group of Year 4 and 5 children participated in the Anti-Bullying training program, at The Elms school, provided by The Diana Award. The children successfully completed the training, which equips staff and children to tackle bullying issues head on and aims to create a safer, kind school community. At Longmoor, we are currently working towards the Respect badge and have completed many campaigns towards this badge. One of the campaigns includes a Respect Newsletter, which the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have written. Please see the documents at the bottom of this page.
Anti Bullying Week 2022 - Reach Out
In November 2022, Longmoor took part in the National Anti-Bullying week. The theme was 'Reach Out'. The week began with the Anti-Bulling Ambassadors introducing the week during morning assemblies. Monday was also 'Odd Sock Day' and children and staff came to school wearing odd socks to promote diversity. The children completed Anti-Bullying activities during the week and the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors held an Anti-Bullying poster competition.

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 children and offer a healthy hot lunch prepared in our own kitchen. We also have active breaks during afternoons.
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.
A healthy school:
