This week, as part of anti-bullying week, we
launched our No Outsiders Bronze, Silver and
Gold Challenges to classes. For Bronze
children need to be able to tell anyone who
asks what No Outsiders is; Silver they need to
show they understand No Outsiders through
their actions, particularly at lunchtimes; and
for Gold classes have been challenged to come
up with their own ideas about how they can
continue to promote No Outsiders in our school
and also across the community.
Please ask your child about No Outsiders - can they tell you what it's all about??
