United against bullying
This year’s anti-bullying week is following the theme ‘United Against Bullying’. Mr Braham, a member of the Senior Leadership Team, approached Year 13 students Joely, Sujan, Katie, Rania and Uchenna to work together to create an assembly. The sixth form students have created a fabulous presentation, having planned, filmed and edited the assembly which covers topics such as the definition of bullying and how it can be identified, alongside case studies and examples of short and long-term effects which individuals could sometimes experience. Most importantly, it gives a very strong message that bullying is not tolerated within school and college and how important it is for students to report any incidents so they can be dealt with swiftly.

Joely, project leader and headgirl, said: “We ensured the assembly was educational for students but also reinforced Richmond School’s values and the small community feel in which students can confide in trusted members of staff to resolve any issues which may arise.
“Here at Richmond School and Sixth Form College, we’d like to think that bullying is a very rare occurrence; however, if the scenario were to occur we would like students to know it will be quickly resolved and prevented from happening again, ensuring their time here is happy and enjoyable.”
Mr Braham said: “I am very impressed with the content and quality of the students’ assembly which is pitched at exactly the right level and reflects how important it is that our students know the steps to take if they or their friends ever experience bullying.”
