Anti-Bullying

 

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.

 

 

 

Wow! Our team is on fire!

Our aim is to Anti-Bullying and Hate Crime at St. Gregory's into the 21st Century

 

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. 

 

 

Pupil Reflections

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.  Beil Drum, a police officer gave a talk follwed 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)
