We were pleased to hold Anti-Bullying Week throughout all parts of ISM this week.
Anti-Bullying Week has been a wonderful celebration of everything that ISM promotes throughout the school year, and it has allowed us to highlight our key core value of “caring” further through many different activities and interventions.
Monday started with Odd Sock Day across the whole school. This day is designed as an opportunity to encourage our students to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!
We were delighted to have Childnet UK visit ISM on Tuesday and Wednesday. Childnet is a UK based organisation who work directly with children and young people from the ages of 3-18, as well as parents, carers, teachers and professionals, finding out about their real experiences online and the positive things they are doing.
Further highlights from the week included making Kindness Trees across the school, which make wonderful reading, with messages of kindness being spread by students, teachers and support staff. These messages are again reinforcing our caring value and are allowing our community to express gratitude and kindness to those around them. Assemblies were also held on the theme of ‘Reaching Out’, identifying harassement, promoting upstanders and discussing expected ISM behaviours.
We are very proud of all our students and of their commitment and enthusiasm to this year’s Anti-Bullying Week. There is a tremendous amount of work going on in this area, and ISM is also looking to further develop its current provision to ensure we are the very best in everything we do!
