Anti-Bullying Week

To coincide with the Anti-Bullying Week, we have produced a new poster with the title,’SOAR above bullying at Saint Cecilia’s’. We want every child to feel happy and safe in school. Ephesians 4:29 says: “Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.”

The theme for Anti-Bullying Week aims to promote difference and equality in schools with the tag-line ‘All Different, All Equal’. The idea is to help children and young people celebrate what makes them, and others, unique and help them understand why it’s important that every child feels included in school, able to be themselves without fear of bullying.

This week’s assemblies will feature a clear anti-bullying message. On Monday 13th November the amazing saxophonist Reggie Dabbs from Florida addressed pupils in Years 7-10 (see pictures below).

Pupils can share any bullying, or other conduct concerns, about themselves or others, in confidence, via the SOAR boxes located at various points around the school.  SOAR boxes are emptied daily.
