Anti-Bullying Week at Newquay Tretherras Is Promoted by NT RESPECT

Anti-Bullying Week 2018 at Newquay Tretherras was delivered by the school values system called ‘NT RESPECT’.

Students and staff were involved in a week long programme with this year’s NT RESPECT getting the whole school to take action against bullying, discrimination and to create a supportive environment where diversity is respected.

During the themed week long campaign students took part in; creating interactive stands which displayed ‘Pay It Forward’ – written out acts of kindness messages, raising awareness of differences with literature on LGBT, Mental Health awareness and disability, a message balloon display, an anti-bullying wristband sale, an NT RESPECT cake sale and an odd socks day to celebrate diversity.

Year group assemblies were delivered by the Sixth Form students who highlighted cases studies of bullying and the need to stand up to bullies. Tutor time gave students the opportunity to discuss tolerance and diversity whilst lessons held anti-bullying themed workshops.

Head of Year 11, Ms Hurley who led week commented, “NT Respect week has helped to raise awareness of the diversity we have in our communities. We were encouraged by the maturity and understanding our students showed and glad to see that students really embraced the events with such a positive attitude and wonderful outcomes. NT RESPECT is truly part of what we expect Newquay Tretherras students understand the world around them.”
