We tend to put lots of emphasis on stopping bullying. We don’t do very much with classroom rules. We tend to have each class make posters about their own classroom rules and those are displayed for the first few weeks of term. What seems to happen in some USA schools looks quite interesting. It’s certainly clearer for the kids what is and is not acceptable. See the next two posts for examples.


No Bullies Here

It worked well – there was a whole week of circle times on the subject,a ‘180 ways to be kind’ wall which the children were able to add ideas to all week,(I might have a photo of that somewhere..) a suggestions box for positive things to do at playtime, peace maker patrols and it ended with a whole school anti-bullying party where everyone wore blue and lots of positive games were played.
