2023 Pupil Questionnaire Results:

Many thanks to everyone that completed the pupil questionnaire we recently sent out as part of Anti-Bullying week. Here is a quick summary of the responses:


100% of our children said they were happy

98% of our children feel safe in school

85% of our children like coming to school and feel like they belong

All of the children who responded said they were kind

Unfortunately ...


18% of our children didn't feel calm

10% of our children worry a lot

13% of our children do not sleep well


School staff are always here to help support all the children and we ask that if you have a specific concern that you speak to your child's class teacher as soon as possible. 

We want to help you with the areas that were raised in the questionnaire. Please follow the link below to our Wellbeing page where you will find some support for anxious children and sleep issues.


Make a noise about bullying - Anti-Bullying Week

13th – 17th November 2023.


Bullying affects millions of lives and can leave us feeling hopeless. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it. Too often, we are silent when we see bullying take place, silent about the hurt bullying causes, and silent when we hear bullying dismissed as ‘just banter’. It doesn't have to be this way.

Of course, we won’t like everyone and we don’t always agree, but we can choose respect and unity. This Anti-Bullying Week let’s come together to have discussions about what bullying means to us, how banter can turn into something more hurtful, and what we can do to stop bullying. Together, we can make a difference and take a stand against bullying.


And it doesn’t stop with young people. From teachers to parents and influencers to politicians, we all have a responsibility to help each other reach out. Together, let’s be the change we want to see. Reflect on our own behaviour, set positive examples and create kinder communities.

It takes courage, but it can change lives. So, this Anti-Bullying Week, let’s come together and make a noise about bullying.


Throughout this week the children will be thinking deeply about kindness and the importance of reaching out and speaking out if they are worried about someone.

Here are just a few of the photos from this week. There have been kindness bingo challenges, secret kindness missions, paper hugs and friendship bracelets among the activities.

Becoming an "Upstander"

Children need to know what bullying looks like...and what to do about it. Sesame Street in Communities brings free video content of everyone's favorite, furry Muppet friends as they help children and the adults in their lives reach their highest potential.

Be an Upstander - Prevent Bullying: A NED Short

The NED Show takes a positive stand on bullying by offering four ways that students can be an upstander (vs a bystander) when they see bullying. The four ways are: 1) Be a buddy 2) Interrupt the bully 3) Speak out about bullying 4) Tell someone at school about the bullying.
