Anti-Bullying Week at Fairlop

Lots of activity centered around Anti-Bullying week here at Fairlop. We learned the really important message that bullying is not acceptable here in school or in our surrounding communities.

This year's campaign was 'Stay Safe in Cyberspace' with a focus on Cyberbullying. This is when new technology such as mobile phones, e-mails and social networking sites are used to deliberately upset another person. Mrs Skinner, our ICT Curriculum Support Teacher, gave a talk to parents about the importance of E-Safety and tips on how to keep our students safe online. If you would like more information about E-Safety, please let her know.

We had assemblies, class talks and acted out bullying scenarios and in ICT we made some fantastic Anti-Bullying and Cyberbullying posters which are on the display boards in the ICT room. We also entered a Cybermentors widget competition where we drew and named our widget, and thought of a suitable slogan. We will find out the winners next week - wish us luck!
