We are also keen supporters of the Pro Kindness Campaign, and we have regular discussions about it during our assemblies. This includes mention of Compliment Day, Random Acts of Kindness, Anti-Bullying Week and Changemaker Week.

The Pro Kindness Campaign encourages children and young people and children to combat the negative social norms, bullying, and inequality with compassion, courage and kindness. It aims to replace the norm of “bullying is cool” with “kindness is cool”, and banish the idea that being kind makes you inferior, soft, or weak.

“Everyone deserves to feel safe at school”
