Say No To Bullying!

At Barlborough Primary School we are committed to tackling bullying. We believe that all children have the right to feel safe and be safe. We regularly review with the children their understanding of the term bullying and what they can do to reduce it. At school we use the STOP, START and VIP acronyms.

  • STOP = Several Times On Purpose
  • START = Start Telling And Reporting Trouble.
  • VIP= Verbal, Indirect, Physical

Thanks to our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

A huge thank you to all the children who applied to be anti-bullying ambassadors this year, we were inundated with applications. The ambassadors read them all carefully and anonymously and we would like to welcome Katie (Y4/5P) and Elliot (Y3/4EdV) to the ambassadors.

We would also like to thank everyone for their entries into our design a superhero competition. The winning designs were Stephen (Y1) and Abigail (Y5). These 'heroes' have now been painted and are on display in our main school hall on the anti-bullying board.

Anti-bullying week November 2016

The anti-bullying message this time was 'Power for Good'. The children in our school though about how they could use their 'powers for good' by standing up to people, being brave and speaking out and helping and being kind to each other. The anti-bullying ambassadors led an assembly on this and as a school we covered this in classrooms throughout school and have created some powerful displays to support this.

Visit from our Anti-Bullying Governor

Our anti-bullying governor, Mrs Currie-Smith, also came into school to support the children with creating a whole school 'friendship tree' which is now on display in our school hall. Every child in the school created a 'leaf' - what an amazing piece of art.

Anti-Bullying Ambassador Update September 2016

We worked hard last year 2015-2016 to keep our school a safe and happy place.  Here is a summary of the main things we worked on:

  • Anti-bullying week – we made a big display of everyone’s hands in our school to remind us all about the STOP and START mottos, we had a poster competition to design an effective anti-bullying poster, as well as all the exciting things we did during anti-bullying week we had a special visitor in school to some fab workshops about cyber-bullying and friendship for the younger children.
  • Buddy bench – our buddy bench is now up and running – children can go to this bench to draw or write on the chalk bit on the top.  The ABAs will be looking out for children who may be feeling a bit lonely or need a friend to talk to.
  • We have written our own version of the school’s anti-bullying policy – we are going to share this with the rest of the school in assembly during September and it can be viewed and downloaded here:

We are looking forward to the year ahead (2016-2017).  We have lots of exciting things planning including getting some badges so children can spot us more easily, running a smile/ compliment day in September, short-listing and interviewing for new Year 3 ABA and of course Anti-bullying week this year!

Thank you to all of the old Year 6 ABAs – we wish those lots of luck at secondary school.  We will look forward to adding more information to our page in the future!

STOP! Award

It is a pleasure to announce that Barlborough Primary School has recieved the STOP award for anti-bullying work done in school. A huge thank you to all concerned and especially to our anti-bullying ambassadors who have implemented many of the strategies this year.

Internet safety

We have been promoting internet safety across school this half term and would like to share the good work we have done from Reception to Year 6. Thank you to all the parents who came in to look at the displays produced the children worked very hard on these. Also a big well done to our Anti-bullying ambassadors who led the Safer Internet Day assembly. 

This is the work produced by our Y5 and Y6 and is on display in the HUB.

This work was produced by 4P and is on display in their classroom. They even made some games to go with it.

This display was created by the 'SMART crew' of class 3/4E and is on display just outside their classroom.

Class 2/3W worked hard to produce this display which is on display in their classroom.

These displays are on display in the foyer outside 2G and 1W and show how the children of these classes know how to make the internet a safer place to be.

Even the very youngest members of our school looked at staying safe. This display was produced by RVG and is on display in their classroom.

New DfE Guidance Issued

The Department for Education have updated and published new guidance to help prevent and tackle bullying.

The new content includes advice and information for parents and carers regarding how they can support their child if they are affected by online bullying.

Whilst bullying incidents are rare at Barlborough Primary School we realise that, like in all schools, bullying can occur.  If you have any concerns regarding your child then please make sure you share these with your child’s class teacher who can then investigate the matter further.  We are always happy to provide a 1-1 session if you require further advice or support.

Anti-Bullying News

Whole School Flash Mob

During anti-bullying week we produced a flash mob to ‘stamp out bullying for all’. All of the children in school were involved. This will be shown in school in January for anyone who missed the live event (dates to be announced after Christmas).

We also produced videos this year containing important messages to ‘stop bullying for all’. These will also be shown in school in January for anyone who would like to see them, but congratulations to 3/4E for producing the winning video for the website…

Competition Winners

Well done to our competition winner Cameron, who designed the winning poster with the slogan ‘Be a buddy, not a bully’. This is now on display in the school hall.

Congratulations to all the other runners up too. There were some fantastic posters created with some important messages. Have a look.

Our smile and compliment days were such a huge success that the Anti-bullying ambassadors will be continuing with these throughout the next half term.
