Today our wonderful school council presented as assembly on Anti Bullying week. It was full of useful advice about what bullying is (and isn’t), as well as advice on what to do if you do feel you are being bullied. Remember “TELL AN ADULT”; we can’t help you if we don’t know what’s going on.
Included here are some photos of the assembly and a copy of the script to remind you of the advice and tips given. Well done, School Council! We are so lucky to have you in our school.
Anti-Bullying Week Assembly
1 Good morning and welcome to our assembly on Anti bullying week.
2 This week we have understood what bullying is and how we can deal with it. There are three things to remember about bullying.
3 Bullying is intentional, it is not an accident. It is when a bully hurts someone on purpose.
1 You can hurt people with words as well as actions.
4 Bullying is repetitive. This means that the bully hurts someone over and over again; it isn’t something that happens only once.
5 Bullying is where one person acts like they have more power than another, and does whatever they can to hurt that person.
6 Please watch our quiz show about bullying.
7: Hello and welcome to this exciting Anti-Bullying Week Quiz Show!!!!
Let’s introduce our contestant for today!
8: Hi I’m very excited about this
7: Question 1 for £100: If a person is being bullied, it is… A – Their own fault, B – their parents fault, C – their friends’ fault or D – the bully’s fault?
8: Well , it reminds me of an incident at school just last month…
Chris and contestant move off stage, Girl 1+2, Boy 1+2 come on stage.
9: (Crying in the middle of the stage. Her friends come over to her)
10: What’s the matter, it’s not like you to cry?
9: It’s Gemma, she has been picking on me ever since the start of the year. She keeps sending me horrible text messages and they are getting worse.
10: That’s so mean! Why is she being like that?
9: I gave her my mobile number over the summer when we were friends. I feel like it’s my fault for letting her have it.
10: It’s not your fault. She is being a bully because she is sending the messages for no reason.
8: So my answer is D – the bully’s fault. No one else is to blame for a bully’s action apart from the bully themselves.
7: And you are…(long pause) going to find out if you’re right, after the break!!!

11: Are you tired of those mean bullies at school? Then you need to try… ‘Telling an adult’!!
Yes, ‘Telling an adult’ is the new product found to be the best way to overcome those days when coming to school can seem like the last thing you want to do.
12: ‘Telling an adult’ will not only stop the bullies (teacher comes and mimes telling the bullies off). But it will also help the bullies think about their actions and make them become aware of the feelings of others.
11: When you buy ‘Telling an adult’, it comes free with ‘Talking to your friends’, another brilliant product that helps you with any bullying issues you have.
So if you want to help your problems at school, we say “Use ‘Telling an adult’ Bang, and the bully is gone!”

7: Welcome back to our quiz. Your answer was right. Question 2. Being bullied makes people feel… A – Scared and upset, B – Happy, C – Excited or D – Confident.
8: I will say ‘A’ , when you are bullied you feel scared and upset.
7: You’re correct!
13: In class we discussed the different types of bullying to understand what people mean when they say “I am being bullied”.
14: Physical Bullying: when a bully kicks, hits and damages someone or their belongings.
15: Verbal Bullying: when a bully is name calling, taunting, threatening and making offensive remarks to another person or group of people.This can be very common and is hard to deal with if an adult doesn’t know.
16: Indirect Bullying : when a bully doesn’t bully the victim to their face, for example; spreading nasty stories about someone, gossiping and excluding people from games.
1: This has to happen all the time to be bullying and is dealt with by victims and bystanders telling an adult.
2: Cyber Bullying: when a bully is sending nasty emails, texts or making nasty phone calls to the victim.
3: All these types of bullying are very serious and can cause lots of damage to the people involved.
Back to our quiz!
7: What can an adult do to help stop bullying? A – shout at the bully until they promise to stop, B – Phone the police because they can deal with the problem, C – Tell the victim off because they should not waste the teachers time or D – talk to the bully to find out why they have been so mean and help their problem.
8: Wow, that’s a hard question. My answer is D; a teacher can talk to the bully to find out why they have been so mean and help them understand how hurtful they have been.
7: Correct! When people speak out, things get done and people realise how they have been acting.
8: Remember, the best thing to do if you feel like you are being bullied is to talk to someone. Even if you don’t think it’s bullying, if you tell someone, they can help you feel better. Remember:
All: TELL AN ADULT
