Anti-Bullying Week

From 16th to 20th of November 2015, Pupil Voice Council have organised an anti-bullying week at Edna G. Olds Academy. Throughout the week, each year group will be given the opportunity to discuss and research different types of bullying. The children will then be given the chance to share what they have found with other members of the school. Pupil Voice Council hopes that this will help to make the children more aware of the different forms of bullying and gain an understanding of how to prevent it.  

The topics being covered by each class are:

Year 1- Verbal bullying

Year 2- Verbal bullying

Year 3- Physical bullying

Year 4- Covert or hidden bullying

Year 5- Peer pressure

Year 6- Cyber bullying

Our School Values

As part of our ongoing work on British values, Pupil Voice Council decided that it would be important to generate a set of values specific to Edna G. Olds Academy. After asking for contributions from each class, Pupil Voice Council met and decided upon the six values they thought best represented our school.

 They are:

-          Our learning is important and fun- we develop our resilience by learning from our mistakes

-          We respect everybody regardless of race and religion- we learn from each other

-          We take responsibility for our own learning

-          We ask questions and look to find answers

-          We respect and care for ourselves, our community and environment

-          It is important to share our opinions and work together collaboratively
