Stamp out bullying in school with these thoughtful assemblies and lesson ideas

Whether or not we like to admit it, bullying happens in one form or another in all educational settings. With the negative long and short-term effects felt by all learners – be they victims, bystanders or even the bullies themselves – it’s important to try and create an open and honest environment in which they can discuss their feelings.

As such, we’ve hand-picked a selection of our favourite resources to help students of all ages to stand up to bullying in school. For even more inspiration, check out our friendship post for younger learners and anti-bullying post for older students.

Resources for younger learners

Spread an awareness of bullying in school and explore a variety of ways to deal with it using this easily-adaptable assembly. Alternatively, prompt students to consider the different forms that bullying can take and the way it can make others feel, before designing an anti-bullying poster with this thought-provoking work book

This colourful presentation not only gets learners thinking about the qualities of a friend, but can also be used as the stimulus for a writing task back in the classroom. Similarly, why not start a discussion about friendship by showing pupils this heart-warming dog and dolphin video, which tells a story of an unlikely bond between these two animals.
 

Anti-Bullying Week Class Assembly

I am doing a class assembly on the friday of anti-bullying week and have written a play including aspects of bullying we wanted to target as a school. My Year 5 class are showing it to the rest of the school and it could be used just as a class assembly if the topic is on bullying. I hope this might be useful and fun for the children. Enjoy

This resource is for Upper KS1 and KS2. It consists of a wordbank with words related to bullying and worksheets for the children to discuss with each other or as a class and then write their own feelings and opinions on bullying. They also have to design an antibullying poster.
I have also included a powerpoint presentation for classroom use during Talking and Listening time.

Friendship . The dog and the dolphin

The wonderful story of the dog and the dolphin who became friends. I have put the web address to the original video but I have included my adapted version in the downloads as the scene when the shark appears is a little frightening for younger viewers I have a also written the soundtrack,. Whatever age, this video captures children’s hearts. It can be used during Assembly or when the children walk in.

Resources for older learners

Explore learners’ understanding of what bullying is and the role of the bystander with the help of these well-structured lessons, which also explore the differences between bullying and conflict. Further re-inforce what behaviour is and isn’t acceptable with this differentiated lesson, complete with scenarios to discuss.

Unfortunately rumours are an almost inevitable part of school life. Focus on the impact they can have on individuals and make older students think twice about spreading hurtful gossip with this succinct presentation. And, if any pupils have been affected by bullying, encourage them to feel more confident in themselves with this building self-esteem activity

"Help I'm being bullied!" powerpoint and self-motto resource

Powerpoint based on Dr. Emily Lovegrove's "Help! I'm being bullied" I developed to work with my MLD class during PSHE sessions and a worksheet to help them think about their self-motto. Session is on building self-esteem and thinking about how we deal with bullying. Hopefully will be one of 3 (not done the others yet!)
