We’re ‘Powering Up’ for Anti-Bullying Week

We’re getting ready to mark Anti-Bullying Week with a range of thought-provoking activities.

Anti-Bullying Week takes place from November 14 to 18 and this year has the theme of ‘Power for Good.’ Along with other schools across the country, we will be urging students, parents, carers and teachers to ‘power up’ and help us take action against bullies.

Students will be writing ‘Power for Good’ pledges and creating storyboards about their own superhero with super powers. Assemblies throughout the week and themed tutor-led activities will all focus on anti-bullying.

Poole’s Youth Centres are also getting involved in the campaign. Bourne Valley Youth Centre will be running a host of  activities throughout the week  including comic strips, debate, quizzes and free food on the following days:

Wednesday 16 November  – Year 10 and over

Thursday 17 November – Years 8-9

Friday 18 November – Years 6-7.

An anti-bullying survey is undertaken with all Poole schools every year. The most recent survey showed that it was cyber bullying where schools had reported the most increase.

Parents and carers can find useful information around these issues in the termly Parents Online Safety Newsletter provided by Dorset Police’s Safe Schools and Communities team or by visiting
