The children gave some lovely feedback in the Pupil Survey - "The sports competitions are great. There are no bullies. It's better here than my last school because it's quieter and you can get on with your work. You always have someone to go to. It's kind, caring and well-organised. What would you change - nothing - it's great just as it is!"

Spencer Bear Team leads the way to becoming a Rights Respecting School

All children and young people have rights. These rights are the things that children need to be safe, healthy and happy. The United Nations has a list of all the rights that children have. This list is called the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). To see the 42 Articles which relate to the Rights of the Child, click on the ‘Rights Respecting School UNICEF’ logo found on the School’s home webpage: www.nitonprimary.org

Because Niton Primary School believes that the rights of children and young people matter, the school is working towards achieving the Right Respecting Schools Award. This award recognises that the school works to embed children’s rights in our ethos and culture to improve wellbeing and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. To achieve this Niton Primary are working with pupils, parents, the community and the wider world, to help improve the treatment of children and their environment.

This week the children heard about the UNCRC and were made aware that they have many rights that they can rely upon. They also have been encouraged to get involved and have their voices heard when decisions are made which affect their lives.

 By participating in decision making, children may be able to use and better understand their rights, and play a fuller role in their own lives and in the communities where they live. This can be take the form of writing our pupil friendly anti-bullying policy, supporting a local campaign or holding charitable fundraising events.

 If you would like to know more about the Right Respecting School Award or would be interested in joining our school Rights Respecting Steering Group, please ask a Spencer Bear Representative, Catherine Hoare or Wanda Wall.

‘Stop bullying’: Niton Primary’s  ‘High 5’ Anti Bullying Slogan
 
We had a fantastic response from all pupils for our ‘High 5’ anti bullying campaign, with the children suggesting a variety of strategies to prevent bullying at Niton Primary School. The Spencer Bear Team and Staff agreed that the following High 5 gives a clear approach to stop bullying, which all children can follow. 
 
The High 5 slogan is:   
 
‘Stop Bullying’ 
1. Talk to the bully
2. Stay with your friends
3. Walk away
4. Tell someone you trust
5. Stand strong.
 
The children have been using this approach and along with other initiatives, it has had a positive impact towards making Niton Primary a ‘Bullying Free Zone’.
Further guidelines for Parents  can be found HERE in a booklet by the NSPCC
