Anti-Bullying Week 2019

We have been celebrating Anti-Bullying Week this week, taking part in a number of activities that focused on ‘choosing respect.

Just some of the things children have been doing is wearing odd socks for the day, and creating an action for ‘#chooserespect’.

Everyone did really well at taking part in all the activities, and it was great to see all the children get involved.
