Year 5 and Year 6 pupils had a visit today from Danny Gilchrist to work with on issues around Anti Bullying. Pupils joined in the workshops discussing types of bullying, the effects it has on children and how we can support one another in school. There is a wealth of help for parents and children who feel they need extra support. The ZAP programme is run by Kidscape, is free and welcomes enquiries from families.
