Welcome to the Anti-Bullying and Hate Crime area of our school website.
As Anti-Bullying and Hate Crime Ambassadors we believe every member of our school family has the right and responsibility to ensure everyone feels respected, cared for and safe. We encourage everyone to work cooperatively so that we all understand these terms, who to turn to for support and what happens if incidents are reported.
Anti-Bullying Week 13th - 17th November, 2017
Our theme for this year is “all different, all equal, no bystanders”
In preparation for our Anti-Bullying Week Chloe Ledger (8 Winefride) and Liberty Ratcliffe (8 More) have designed our launch poster, which will be displayed in all pupil and adult toilets in school. Thank you for the wonderful design!
"We're all equal
We're all the same
Best get ready
It's Anti-Bullying Week Again!"

Wise up! School Awards 2017
Pupils and staff attended the Warrington ‘Wise Up’ launch event on Wednesday 18th October at the Gateway.
The ‘Wise Up’ is an annual awards scheme that looks to recognise and celebrate the excellent work that Warrington schools are doing to tackle the issues of bullying and hate crime.
All the schools who enter demonstrate they understand the importance of creating a safe environment in their school, where children can be free of bullying, especially those who may have a disability, be from another ethnic background or religion, have a different sexual orientation (LGB) or are transgender or gender non-conforming.
Gold awards are presented to schools which demonstrate outstanding practice. St Gregory’s is the only school to have secured Gold for three consecutive years. This year we are aiming for the new Platinum award.
On our way to the'Wise-up' Award launch, we were priviledged to have a picture taken outside the Town Hall with the Mayor! He came out of a meeting, shook our hands and we have invited him to come to school for our Anti-Bullying Week. Faisal Rashid is also coming to school."

Today we had the priviledge of attending the 'Wise Up' Award launch event at the Gateway. Neil Drum, a police officer gave a talk followed by Dave from the Warrington Disabilities Partnership who gave an inspirational speech about his struggles with being in a wheelchair. He said "Life is what you can do not what you can't". Next we picked a song "boys that sing" by Viola Beach. We chose this song because the drummer, Jack Dakin, in the band used to attend our school. We hased the storyline in our song to be about the 'Wise Up' Award journey. We had a great morning and we can not wait for the award ceremony in February. Our application made us feel prepared to achieve the Platinum Award. Liberty Ratcliffe (8 More)
