Anti-Bullying week: A blog from our Prefects
This week the Prefect Team lead an assembly on our support for the ‘United Against Bullying’ national campaign.
What is bullying?
Bullying is the repetitive intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. It can happen face to face or online.
This can be direct, verbal, physical or cyber.
What we do at school?
ECS is an inclusive and happy environment. On the rare occasions when there is an incident of bullying, the staff are wonderful. They listen to all sides of the story to understand the big picture. They help all parties involved understand their actions and support them to make better choices in the future. Teachers also continue to support and check-in with pupils. This makes us feel safe and cared for.
Who can you talk to?
Everyone who works at ECS understands our school anti-bullying policy and they are always happy to help. Some key people to talk to in the pastoral team are:
• Mrs Reddington -Deputy head (Pastoral)
• Mrs Porter – Head of Lower Years
• Mr Meeke – Head of Upper Years
Our role as Prefects
Our role as Prefects is to look out for each other and help those that need it. We help others to make better choices and we especially support younger pupils during playtimes to ensure that all are happy and included. Our positive and inclusive School community is important to us and we try to act as role models by showing kindness, respect and leadership. We hope that pupils in the younger years will wish to apply to be a prefect when they are top of the School.
Thank you for reading our blog and we hope you have a lovely weekend!
