Bullies have received an uncompromising message from pupils at Merlin Top Primary Academy, as part of anti-bullying week.

The children designed posters to put up around school, wore anti-bullying wristbands and came to school dressed in blue clothes to match the colour representing the initiative.

The school also arranged role play and discussion sessions to help pupils make the right decisions if confronted by this type of abuse.

Head teacher Michael Harrison said: “We used this year’s week to raise awareness of the issue that can affect all our children.

“We talked about bullying in class and in assembly. Pupils made anti-bullying slogans and posters for their classrooms. The School Council provided ‘Beat Bullying’ wristbands for all the children and staff, and the week ended with a Wear Blue to School Day, as well as the launch of a new anti-bullying policy. At Merlin Top we are all working together to tackle bullying in all its forms.”
