Last week’s national anti-bullying week with the theme ‘Reach out’ saw the children take part in a range of engaging activities led by the outside agency Big Foot Arts Education. The KS2 assembly at the start allowed the children to explore the definition of bullying, that it is targeted, intended and ongoing. Within the individual class workshops the children looked at the difference between bullying and relational conflict. The title of the workshops ‘What would you do?’ for KS2 explored the question of the children’s possible responses to witnessing bullying as well as responses should they be targeted.
According to the Anti-Bullying Alliance:
Bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. It can happen face to face or online.
