Anti Bullying Leader - Miss Sims


Anti-Bullying League

At St Michael’s we take a proactive view on anti-bullying to ensure all pupils are free from bullying or harassment.  

The league consists of two pupils from every class from Year 3 to Year 6, who meet on a regular basis with Miss Sims, the Anti Bullying Leader. The group act as liaison officers between the working party and their peers. Members of the league wear purple uniform in order stand out in school and on the playground. In this way other children can seek their help when it is needed.
The children discuss ideas as a class and then bring their thoughts and feelings to the league meetings. As a direct result of this an action plan is created and then implemented during the school year.


Anti-Bullying League- Purple Star Buddy Bench


Where to find the bench and how to use it-


The bench is located near to the KS2 building, an anti-bullier will be near the bench at all times.

When you feel sad and lonely, sit on the bench and an anti-bullier will come over to you.

They will talk to you to find out what the problem is, and try to help you solve it.

They may give you some space or quiet time, help you to find a friend or encourage you to play a game.


Anti-Bullying Week

Every year we take part in the national Anti-bullying week that falls in the month of November. This gives pupils a chance to take part in class activities that raise awareness of bullying and gives pupils skills on how to deal with situations. The anti-bulliers lead a whole school assembly during this week introducing themselves and their role.

We invite all pupils and staff to wear odd socks on odd socks day, a day when schools, workplaces, and individuals join together to show that it's okay to be different and to stand up against bullying and discrimination.

We like to organise fundraising events so we can improve our lunch time opportunities giving pupils a wider choice of activities to make lunchtimes a happy and enjoyable part of the school day.

Learning Council Leader - Miss Campbell

Learning Council

At St Michael’s the Learning Council is made up with nominated representatives from each year group from Year 2 to Year 6. Every pupil in the school has an opportunity to stand for elections and vote for who they wish to represent them on the council. The representatives act as liaison officers between the council and their peers. The children discuss ideas as a class prior to meetings and the reps take these ideas to the council where all collective ideas are discussed and decisions made about how to take these ideas forward. The outcomes are then fed back to the classes.

The Learning Council arrange lots of extra activities within the school and act as the pupil voice. Some of the many activities the council have done are-
  • Co-ordinated St Michael's Got Talent
  • Arranged fund raising days
  • Taken part in the creation of a quilt for our consortium
  • Taken part in cake bakes to raise money for the school
  • Fed back to the headteacher regarding menu choices
  • Given advice and suggestions about areas of the curriculum
