Monday 14th November

This week in school it is anti-bullying week.

We have had an assembly in school today discussing the meaning of bullying and the ways that bullying can affect individuals. Everyone was very mature and contributed to the discussions. All year groups were encouraged to think about five trusted adults that they could turn to should they need to share any worries.

The main message, this year, is to ‘Reach Out’. As a school, Longnor thought about what this means and why this is an important message. One of the ways that children could express themselves this week is by wearing odd socks: being unique and being proud to be an individual.

Please continue these discussions at home and should anything need following up in school, then please let us know.

Bullying is not ok.

All the best.

Mrs L. Edgerton
