Anti-Bullying Committee

Title of Student Voice Group: Anti-Bullying Committee

Number of students involved: 2010/11 – 15    2011/12 – 14

Specify the Year Groups involved: Year 8 into Year 9.

Impact- how does the group impact on:

a)    The individuals within the group

Students are responsible for helping deal with bullying within the school in conjunction with staff. Individuals benefit from this support and often find they are assisted in dealing with the bullying they are suffering and know where to go and what to do next.
There is a team ethos amongst the group.

b) The student/staff body- behaviour and safety

There is an impact on the bullying within the school. Students are offered an alternative other than having to speak to a member of staff in the school. It raises the profile of bullying within the school and the fact that it is not acceptable as part of Team PB.

c) The teaching and learning in the building/academic progress

Learning improves once students feel supported and guided.
Students on the Committee feel part of the school, they feel empowered and confident which can transfer into their academic progress.

d) SMSC development of students

During Anti-Bullying Week (November) the Anti-Bullying Committee prepares and performs an assembly for the rest of the school to promote the work they will be doing.
This also transfers into a PSHE session done by different year groups in the school.

How is the group led and managed? (frequency of meetings/ informing students/ application process- are all students FSM,SEND LAC able to be included?/ students supporting students etc.)

The group is selected by the HOY/DHOY through a promotion campaign where students volunteer for the role and are supported by a member of staff.

All students are eligible to apply for the committee.

Meetings are held by the HOY/DHOY on a regular basis, this increases in preparation for Anti-Bullying Week which is during November each year.
