Equality & Human Rights Commission – Celebrating Our Anti-Bullying Platform
At Crickhowell High School, we use and promote the C.H.S anti-bullying platform, which stands for ‘Community. Happiness. Safety’. The Wellbeing Team and wider staff team have used this system over recent years and it has allowed us to track any reports of bullying in a highly effective way.
We regularly remind students of the several ways that they can report bullying. The main methods include:
The Action on Bullying report – June 2014 states that using the Welsh Government’s definition of bullying set out in ‘Respecting Others: Anti-Bullying Overview (2011)’.
There are many definitions of bullying, but most consider it to be: “deliberately hurtful and repeated often over a period of time”.
In recent months, Crickhowell High School has been selected to be a showcase school for the ‘Equality and Human Rights Commission’. Mrs Carole Phillips, our Student Support Officer, has shared information on how we support the equality and diversity of all students across all year groups. Our focus is very much on global citizenship and encouraging students to appreciate differences.
A summary video of our work can be viewed on the link below.
In addition to this, the education we provide to our students on cyberbullying and sexting has been recognised and this is achieved mainly through Personal and Social Education (PSE) lessons and assemblies.
Our work in this area is available as a case study, which can be downloaded below:
Our success in this area is due to the dedication of our staff, students and parents in maintaining our school ethos of mutual trust and respect. Our emphasis on wellbeing helps to ensure that students are happy and healthy, which in turn leads to them achieving their personal best.
