Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Anti-Bullying

Anti-Bullying at Archbishop Cranmer

 

Everyone at Archbishop Cranmer C of E Primary Academy ensures all our children feel safe and happy to live life in all its fullness (John 10:10)   One of the ways we keep children safe is through teaching children about bullying and the effects it can have.This is covered through our weekly HeartSmart PSHE lessons, where Boris the Robot helps us to understand how we can take care of ourselves and each other, and as part of our assemblies and acts of collective worship. We also have visits from external providers, such as the NSPCC, who help us to recognise the importance of speaking out to stay safe. We always encourage children to tell an adult if they have any concerns about bullying. If they do not feel they can tell someone they can write a worry down and use our worry monster, who lives in our school library.

 

Our Link Governor for Anti-Bullying is Mrs Sarah Rowe.

 

All Together Schools Programme

 

We're pleased to announce that we have been awarded by the Anti-Bullying Alliance with a Silver status for our commitment to anti-bullying and wellbeing, upgrading from Bronze status in 2020. This means that our school has been recognised for its good practice. We are proud to be a school that is United Against Bullying and will be continuing to work towards gaining Gold status in the future!

 

As part of the programme, we achieved the following,initially to earn Bronze:

  • Created a specific Anti-Bullying Policy

  • Appointed a member of our Pupil Parliament to act as our pupil representative for Anti-Bullying awareness. Annie and Kaitlyn (Year 5) are our MPs for Anti-Bullying (2020-21), taking over from Maisie who held the role last year (2019-2020)

  • Celebrated Anti-Bullying Week in November, where our Pupil Parliament led an informative assembly and organised 'Odd Socks Day' to raise awareness

  • Introduced a new scheme for PSHE (Personal Social Health Education) which encourages children to develop resilience and covers anti-bullying awareness

  • Provided staff with training materials to support their practice in developments and resources for Anti-Bullying  

 

We were awarded with our Silver school status in March 2021 following another self-audit of our practice and commitment to anti-bullying. As part of the programme, we achieved the following:

  • Updated our Anti-Bullying Policy, in line with ABA recommendations and to ensure clear guidance was in place.

  • Advocated Anti-Bullying through the use of pupil voice as part of our Pupil Parliament where Annie and Kaitlyn (Year 5), our MPs for Anti-Bullying (2020-21), helped to organise events as part of Anti-Bullying Week in November, and much more! You can read their report below.

  • Pupils in Key Stage 2 have also begun taking part in Anti-Bullying Ambassador training through the Diana Award.

  • Provided staff with training materials to support their practice in developments and resources for Anti-Bullying.

  • Continued to ensure that anti-bullying awareness is part of our wider curriculum.

 

Moving forward, we would like to aim for Gold status for 2022, and have begun to audit our provision and create a new action plan to ensure that we continue to be recognised for our excellent practice in working against bullying.
