SCHOOL COUNCIL UPDATE: By Maisa (Y6)
On Tuesday 21st November all members of the School Council delivered a parents information evening about Anti-Bullying. Firstly, the School Council revealed the results of the questionnaire.
All children across the school completed a questionnaire which showed us that:
16 children think there is a problem with bullying at our school
115 children think there is not a problem with bullying at our school
33 children were not sure.
All children knew what to do if they thought they were being bullied and most knew what to do if they were unhappy at school. Suggestions from the children about ways to improve the school included:
Playtime Buddies to check on the buddy bench
More Play leaders
More quiet activities like the Monday lunch club
We will discuss these suggestions at our next School Council meeting.
We also gave out a parent questionnaire, unfortunately we only had 29 returned.
Our results showed that 4/29 think there is a problem with bullying at our school and 18/29 think there isn’t. 7 were not sure. 16/29 parents know how best to support their child if they think they are being bullied at school, 12 weren’t sure and 1 didn’t know.
During the evening we provided parents with information about how to support your child if they have a problem and what to do if they have a concern. We also launched our film which we have made to show everybody in our school community what we do to teach children about dealing with problems and what to do if there is a worry.
