Anti Bullying Week

Students and staff at Great Torrington School were proud to be supporting Anti-Bullying Week with a whole host of activities focused on the theme of 'Staying Safe and Connected'. The activities, which took place during the week of the 18-22nd November 2013, support a national campaign which is focused on bullying.  Recently 8 young people travelled to Newton Abbott, South Devon to be enrolled and trained as Anti Bullying Ambassadors and then returned to present their campaign to the school in assemblies across all houses. 

All activities supported the stance that bullying is not tolerated at Great Torrington School. 

Students have played an important part in organising the activities which, throughout the week, focus on the anti-bullying theme. At the end of the week every young person in Great Torrington School wrote their pledge to combat bullying if and when it happens on a giant paper chain link. 

The activities that are held help to highlight and continue the work we do to reinforce the message that any type of bullying is not acceptable nor will it be tolerated in school or in any area of life.  It was great to see the pupils engage and support the anti-bullying week.  Our massive school paper chain is now hung proudly in the School dining Hall and will be on view to everyone and will be on display for the School Christmas Fayre on the 29th November 2013.
