Stansted school teaches anti-bullying lessons

Teachers at Magna Carta Primary Academy in Stansted have held a series of anti-bullying sessions for pupils. Studying from home, year one pupils watched a video of how TV show characters Topsy and Tim helped their friend when he was bullied and discussed with parents anti-bullying strategies taught at the school.

Year two children focused on how to be a good friend while Year 3 pupils designed odd socks to represent how everyone is unique.

Year four students had thought-provoking discussions via a video call about the effects of bullying.

Pupils also donated £2 each to take part in an odd socks day. The money raised will be spent on books for the school’s anti-bullying curriculum and for a friendship bench.
