Anti-Bullying Week

Anti Bullying Week

This week we talked all about bullying and how we can take a stand against any form of bullying in our school. We created our new bullying slogan which is 'bullies undermine, let kindness shine' and our pupils took part in a poster competition for a new poster that would be presented around school. We are very impressed with the children's contribution to this project and look forward to seeing kindness shine at Overdale School.


Progression of Skills

PSHCE at Overdale School

At Overdale PSHCE is part of a whole school approach and we aim to provide a range of opportunities for children to make links to other areas of learning and explore a wide range of social, moral, cultural and behavioural issues. Through assemblies and whole school activities, we develop the children’s learning and understanding in areas including E-Safety, Anti-Bullying and Charity work.

Strengths of the curriculum:

  • pupils play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community
  • pupil voice is encouraged and valued
  • teachers and leaders provide a range of lessons and opportunities which enhance the understanding and development of all pupils
  • at Overdale we promote British values and aim to prepare children for life in modern Britain

Areas for development:

  • Develop links with other subject leaders in cluster schools to share knowledge and good practice
