  • We parent. We think that schools are one of the safest places for our children. Most of the year, our children spend more time at school than anywhere else than our home. However, some schools have problems, such as bullying and theft, which make them less secure. As a mother we want for our children is for them to be safe at all times when they were in school. As a mom every time my child gets home from school, I talk to them about their day, because sometimes your child won't tell you right away if they are having a problem. If ever they were bullied, or anything else makes them uncomfortable talk to them and teach your child to resolve problems without fightin. I would like to share this link, about a service on how to protect your children: Check it out it's interesting:

  20. 20. Some of the things that happen during the day• We watch a year 10 drama production that helps us to understand what bullying is. It is useful to know the difference between bullying and falling out with people.• We spend time looking at the qualities a good friend should have• We use drama to explore ways we can become more assertive in different situations• We use art and a circle time to explore the emotional effects of bullying• We create a class charter where we commit to being supportive and kind to each other
  21. 21. • The day is very positive. It is about trying to make us more aware of the importance of having good relationships with each other and helping us to develop the emotional skills to do this.
  22. 22. •Bully watch map
  23. 23. Bully watch map• As part of a student voice activity all students colour coded a map of our school to identify places where they feel safe from bullying and parts of the school where they feel less safe.• Teachers have used what the map shows to make sure that the areas of the school where students feel at risk of bullying are patrolled by staff. We have added to the map room for students to identify which times of the day they would like staff or Prefects to be aware that this is when some feel most at risk from bullying.
  24. 24. •Share any worries
  25. 25. How does this work?Staff and Pupils carry around a reminder about how to do this. Staff have it stuck on their ‘key badge’. It reminds themwhat to do if a student talks to them about bullying or are worried about something else.

  47. 47. Bullies and Me By Lauren Avery
  48. 48. The start• I was born on the 27th of April 1996 with a condition called Turner’s Syndrome.• TS isn’t life threatening. It’s to do with something called Chromosomes, and means I’m smaller than other girls, I can’t have children, and struggle with co-ordination.
  49. 49. A few years pass…• When I was three, it would become more obvious that I had TS. By this time, girls with the condition start to be smaller than other girls, and later with their milestones.
  50. 50. The bullying begins.• When I was seven, it must have become even more obvious I was different.• I was bullied by a couple of boys who weren’t much taller than me for being a ‘shrimp’.• My family and I were still unaware that I had TS. They thought I was ‘just little’.
  51. 51. The bullying gets too much.• The bullying became so bad that, in Year Five, I moved schools.• I received some bullying at my new school, but it wasn’t as bad, and I was generally happier, as the teachers did more about it.
  52. 52. Secondary school.• When I began Year Seven, bullying continued. I was known as ‘midget’, ‘dwarf’, and ‘oompa loompa’.• It was in my second year I was to discover, along with my family, that I had Turners’ Syndrome.
  53. 53. The discovery.• I went to a minor injury and accidents unit, as I was having breathing troubles.• After checking my chest, I was given the all clear, but my dad and I were told I was a ‘bit too small’ for my age.• The doctor emailed my local doctors’ surgery, and, after having my blood tested, it was confirmed not long before Christmas 2008 that I had Turners’ Syndrome.
  54. 54. The injections.• After my discovery, I was able to give a reason for my ‘shortness’ when people teased me about it.• I did a presentation in late Year Eight, and around mid-Year Nine, I made a video. Both were about my condition, and how it affected me, so similar to the presentation you are watching now.• I began daily growth hormone injections not long before my 13th birthday, and without them, I would be even smaller than I am now.
  55. 55. Friendship club• In Year Seven, I attended an after school club called Friendship Club. This gave me a chance to make new friends who would look out for me and make sure I was okay.• At Friendship Club, we did things like art, crafts, puzzles, games, playing on the Wii, watching films, and generally having fun.• This built my skills and improved my confidence as a person.
  56. 56. The bullying stops.• When people understood my condition, they were less likely to be mean about me, or call me names.• There will always be a few people who don’t understand, but they aren’t worth worrying about.
  57. 57. How does bullying effect your life?• It doesn’t matter whether you’re a bully, or bullied, or a bystander. Bullying must stop, so tell someone.• You can either let what’s going on continue, or do something to stop it. That choice is yours, so please make the wise one.
