Fishponds Academy says no to bullying!

At Fishponds CE Academy everything we do is rooted in our vision  of love.

‘Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant
or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.’   
(1 Corinthians 13 v4 -7 Bible ESV)


We know that our school will be a great place if everyone follows the guidance in the passage above.
We  strive to teach and live these values together. Everyone has a right to feel accepted and loved here at Fishponds.

 We have a specific policy that outlines what we believe bullying to be and how we deal with any incidents. Click below to read our policy:

We also have a child friendly version of our policy in a leaflet.

Anti-Bullying Week 2021/2022

On the week of the 15th of November 2021, we celebrated Anti-bullying Week across Fishponds CE Academy. We started by taking part in the traditional odd socks day, and even took the chance to design our own gorgeous odd socks.
Odd socks day introduced the children to the idea that it's okay to be different, and that we are all unique. 
 
Our classes also took part in PSHE lessons focused on our theme of Anti-bullying. These sessions gave students the opportunity to work with scenarios that allowed them to define and identify bullying. As well as how to be an upstander rather than a bystander.

Some of the year groups created kindness boxes, to encourage students to write notes of kindness to others. These were then read out at the end of the week, giving students a well deserved boost. 

Our Ks2 children took part in a competition to create their very own Anti-bullying superheroes. These superheroes had incredible powers of their own choosing, such as being able to sniff out bullying, being able to turn hurtful words into kind words as well as creating bubbles of kindness around those being bullied. 

Our Anti-bullying week is a really important event, that has made our school more aware of what bullying looks like, as well how we can do our part to put an end to it.
