At Mount Pleasant, we take bullying in all forms very seriously and thankfully incidents are rare. We aim to nurture a calm, happy environment where all children feel safe from unkind words and actions.
Each year, every class writes their 'Anti-bullying Pledge' - this is a promise to be kind and thoughtful to EVERYONE in our school. These pledges are displayed in each classroom and in the school hall to remind everyone of the promise they made.
The Anti-bullying Alliance defines bullying as:
The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power
Our Anti-bullying Ambassadors aim to ensure that children at Mount Pleasant feel happy and safe in school. They work to promote appropriate strategies for dealing with instances of bullying behaviour around school, including while using the internet.
Our Anti-bullying Ambassadors trained at the David Lloyd Health Centre in Brierley Hill. They are always available for children to talk to and weekly empty our class 'Worry Boxes'.
In April 2019 we trained a further four Anti-bullying Ambassadors at Himley Hall in Dudley. So we now have 10 ambassadors across our school!
They also work hard to promote the important difference between being rude, being mean and bullying. They help children understand what has happened to them.
We are very proud of our Anti-bullying Ambassadors!
