Kingsmead Smilers - The dedicated student lead Anti-Bullying Support Team win The Big Award!
The BIG AWARD is an external award given for excellence in proactively preventing bullying. Kingsmead has been able to demonstrate that we are working to an externally agreed standard through: consistent and embedded good practice, full inclusion of all children and young people and tailoring our bullying intervention work to suit the needs of pupils. Kingsmead works hard to ensure that every child is enabled to fulfil their true educational potential, or enjoy their community activities, without fear of being bullied.
The anti-bullying and SMILER team has played a huge part in this through offering one to one support, mentoring, drop-in sessions, raising awareness throughout the school, and much more.
In addition to this some of the SMILE members are currently in the process of setting up a new ‘Pride’ support group, celebrating diversity at Kingsmead.
