#Stand up to Bullying
Bullying is an issue which affects people from all walks of life and can happen at any point.
33% of young people reported being bullied in 2014.
60% of public sector workers in the UK had either been bullied or had witnessed bullying.
Bullying exists in all walks of life and all places of work. It happens at events and activities where people meet.
Research confirms long-lasting and damaging outcomes for individuals being bullied, affecting things such as:
- attendance at work or school
- physical health
- mental health
Tomorrow we are all asked to stand up together on #StandUpToBullying day.
Our Academy will:
- Tweet a message of support
- hold assemblies reminding students what to do if they are being bullied or have witnessed bullying
- post a Facebook message
How to tell and get help in the Academy:
- tell any adult that you trust
- speak to your Form Tutor
- speak to your Peer Mentor
- email Buddy@cyac.org.uk
- ask a parent or carer to contact the school
Remember there is strength in numbers
Anti-Bullying Panda visits Caistor Yarborough Academy on Friday 3rd March 2017
Students were surprised to see a Panda when they arrived at school on Friday morning. The Panda's visit was part of an Anti-Bullying Assembly for students in Years 7 - 10, led by a team from 'The Education Network'. The Panda called Buddy met with students in the assembly and went around classrooms throughout the day.
Mrs Julia Graham, Leader of Student Safety said "Caistor Yarborough Academy promotes Anti-Bullying throughout the whole school, throughout the whole year. We are aware that bullying can happen anywhere, but we strongly believe that wherever students are they have the right to be safe. Nobody has the right to make anybody unhappy. Each individual is valued and respected for who they are. We are a school where bullying is seen as unacceptable by all members of the school community."
