Each year the year 4 and 5 children are given the opportunity to put their names forward to be a Bully Buster for the school. Their class can then vote for the 2 people they think will be the best at this.
This year was slightly different because we couldn't cross bubbles. Therefore just Year 5 were chosen as Bully Busters for 2020- 2021.
The current Bully Busters decided that the children that are chosen should be -
Passionate about anti-bullying
Confident to talk in a group and in front of the school
Kind and approachable
Interested in music/song writing (As we will be involved in the Notivate project)
The selected children attend meetings every three weeks (usually on a Thursday lunchtime), be on a playground rota to help supervise at lunchtimes, help with displays and creating an anti-bullying policy for children, take part in the occasional assembly and talk to children in their class about anti-bullying.
The Bully Busters also go on a rota, not only to help with lunchtime supervision but to also monitor the use of some playtime equipment which was bought with money raised by the school council. We have blocks, magnetic games, books, paper and colouring resources, along with picnic blankets and cushions for use on all playgrounds. This will start this year when the children can cross bubbles again.
The Bullybusters for this year are:Chloe M, Charlie E, Hollie B, Kai J, William E, Theo S, Isabelle McC, Josh G, Robbie G, Tyler A, Wiktoria W.
