We were awarded the United Against Bullying Award in 2023,
What is the United Against Bullying Programme?
The United Against Bullying programme is the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s whole-school anti-bullying programme. It supports schools to reduce bullying and improve the wellbeing of all children, focusing on those most at risk, including children and young people with SEND, children and young people who experience racist and faith-targeted bullying, sexual bullying, homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, looked-after children, young carers and those on free school meals.
The overall aim of the programme is to establish United Against Bullying Schools. These are schools that have evidenced their work to reduce bullying and improve the wellbeing of all pupils.
We were nominated for this award by the Nottingham Music Hub, of whom we are a member. This recognises how we offer a range of musical opportunities and high quality teaching to our children. As children move through school, they have increasing opportunities to learn an instrument - including ALL children in Year 4 who take part in whole class ensemble throughout the year. In Years 5 and 6, children can have individual tuition and participate in extra opportunities such as Music Camp at Ilam Hall, Area Band, and performances at venues such as the Royal Concert Hall and the Albert Hall in Nottingham.
Our Reception children enjoy weekly interactive music sessions with Pete and Sue: the fabulous Rainbow Stripes!
