ANTI BULLYING- Fairlight Working together to Say NO to Bullying

Say NO to Bullying Week starts 16th November 2020.

We are asking children and adults at school to wear odd socks on Monday as a way of celebrating our differences

The focus of this week is ‘United Against Bullying’.  The children will be learning and taking part in a variety of activities that promote positive friendships and give children the skills to identify bullying behavior and act to stop this.

 Each child will bring home our Fairlight ‘Working together to say NO to Bullying’ leaflet. 

Please read through this leaflet with your child. 

The content of the leaflet can be found below.

OTHER USEFUL PSHE RESOURCES AND LINKS

Some interesting resources that we love at Fairlight. 

SUMMER TERM PSHE- 2020

Summer term is when we usually hold meetings in school for parents and carers about our PSHE units of work which focus on age appropriate relationship and sex education and from reception through to Year 6.

Due to current circumstances, we are unable to teach these lessons in school for everybody, so here is some information and some resources to help you,if you would like to begin or continue these important conversations at home within the values and religious beliefs that you as a family hold. These resources and ideas are offered as suggestions, rather than recommendations. Please check all resources carefully before sharing with your child.
