A SCHOOL’S efforts to tackle bullying has earned it an award.

Parents, staff, governors and children at North Park Primary School, in Spennymoor, have worked hard over the last year to revamp its anti-bullying policy.

In recognition of their efforts they have received the BIG (Bullying Intervention Group) award, a national award for schools and organisations to show they have excellent anti-bullying practice.

Pupils created advice leaflets and posters, became trained mini-buds and buddies to ensure no-one is sad, lonely or worried in the school yard and reward caring children.

The school also hosted an anti-bullying road show, which included work about online safety and bullying through modern technology, during national Anti Bullying Week.

Headteacher Tricia Monk said: “It is a regular focus for us and we work hard, including with other agencies to make sure children feel safe and feel they can speak up if bullying occurs.

“We are particularly proud of the way the children work together, to support each other.”
