Bullying and anxiety

What Children Are Telling Us About Bullying

At the beginning of Anti-bullying Week, the NSPCC has published a report about what children tell Childline about bullying. This aims to help adults understand what bullied children are experiencing, think about what support they need, and consider how to respond effectively. Key points include: the way bullying is carried out has changed over time; bullying can have a big impact on a child; it can be difficult to ask an adult for help and children sometimes feel that talking to a parent or teacher will not achieve anything; peer support, for example through the Childline message boards, is very important.

After Easter we're offering extra PE for Year 7. If you'd like to join, please go and change in the sports hall after period 5. Please note, there are no school buses when sessions finish at 4:20 so students are responsible for making their own way home. We hope to see you there!

I would like to thank all TTCT staff for their hard work this term, thank our wonderful students for their positivity and families for their support. We are one team The Two Counties team. #ambition #teamwork #honesty.
