Odd Sock Day!
On Monday 14th November, the children of The High School Leckhampton took part in 'Odd Socks Day' to kickstart Anti Bullying Week 2022.
The purpose of wearing odd socks is to show that we should be celebrating difference and embracing difference. The sock choices were particularly brilliant with some being brightly coloured, some being different lengths and some having very jazzy patterns on them!
Miss O'Riordan hosted an Anti-Bullying Assembly to the pupils as part of their House assemblies and spread the important message that bullying will not be tolerated at HSL. The definition of bullying was explained to them and pupils looked at four key categories of bullying: Physical, Verbal, Psychological and Online.
In PSHE next week (Tuesday 22nd November) , year 7 pupils will have a speaker, Robert Higgs, come into school to talk to them all about bullying and the lasting impact it can have on a person.
We are a 'telling school' and it is important for the pupils to notify any member of staff if they notice that a child is isolated, looking vulnerable or someone is being unkind to them. The school will listen and respond.
Please see our Behaviour Policy for our school's Anti Bullying Strategy.
