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) 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
- 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 March 2021, a group of Year 5 children participated in the Anti-Bullying training program, 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 Well-being badge. In July, 2021, the school participated in Well-being Wednesday, where all the classes completed well-being activities and the children had a well-being picnic outside.
Anti- Bullying Week: 16th - 20th November 2020
In November, the school participated in the National Anti-Bullying Week, the theme was 'United Against Bullying'. Once again, we took part in Odd Sock Day and we had an Odd Sock colouring competition. Throughout the week, all classes took part in a range of Anti-Bullying activities.
In November 2019, we took part in the National Anti-Bullying week, the theme being 'Change Starts With Us'. We also participated in 'Odd Socks' Day on Tuesday 12th November which promoted everyone being unique. The children completed Anti-Bullying activities during this week.
In November 2018, Longmoor Primary School took part in the National Anti-Bullying week, this year the theme of the campaign was called 'Choose Respect'. To kick start the week there was an Anti-Bullying assembly for the whole school to introduce the theme. 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 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:
