Mrs Farrington is our lead teacher for the school’s Anti-Bullying work.


We are delighted to announce that Shobnall Primary & Nursery School has been awarded the ‘United Against Bullying’ with Gold Status from the Anti-Bullying Alliance! 

In 2023, our school worked on the United Against Bullying programme which is a whole school anti-bullying programme for schools in England.  Throughout the programme pupil questionnaires, class strategies and corresponding action plans were developed to support and enhance the school’s anti-bullying work.  All the evidence and final audit was independently assessed and we learned the fantastic news that we were awarded Gold Status!  This is a great achievement and one that the school is very proud of.  It is a testament to pupils and staff at Shobnall Primary & Nursery School as it recognises both our work to promote anti-bullying and our positive approach to improving the wellbeing of our pupils.  This year we are continuing to embed the great work started and will be working towards the ‘United Against Bullying’ award in recognition of our continued commitment.

Anti-Bullying Week

The theme for this year’s Anti-Bullying Week was ‘Make a Noise About Bullying!’ and took place from Monday 13th November to Friday 17th November 2023.  Our school promoted this message in abundance with the children being involved in a range of reflective activities.  We started our week wearing odd socks to celebrate what makes us all different.  We recognise that everyone should be encouraged to truly be themselves and celebrate their uniqueness and individuality. 

Across the school we all contributed to a whole school charter with 10 principles to prevent and respond to bullying.  Here is a copy of our ‘Shobnall Anti-Bullying Charter’…

Having devised our ‘Shobnall Anti-Bullying Charter’ all children and staff were given their own coloured leaf to sign and have written something that is different/special about them.  This has been displayed in our entrance hall to promote that we are all following and agree to the Shobnall Anti-Bullying Charter. We are now encouraging parents to add their own leaves on to it!

To promote this year’s message of ‘Make a Noise About Bullying’, each class wrote their own poem.  Here is a selection for you to read, demonstrating the brilliant creativity of our children…

Each class designed their own Peer Defender.  Meet some of our class Peer Defender characters…

Exciting news

For many years we have supported Anti-Bullying Week and Andy Odd Sock with his odd sock themed activities.  With the excellent input and planning from our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors and the hard work from staff and pupils in all classes, in 2020, our school was recognised as making an outstanding contribution.  In recognition of our efforts, we were selected as one of the schools to be part of Andy Odd Sock’s new music video!  To say we were excited, was an understatement!
