Sydenham High School pupils learn to beat bullying
SYDENHAM pupils have been given tips on how to make the school bell ring on bullying.
Girls at Sydenham High School, in Westwood Hill, hosted a day to give the children help and support with bullying, teaching the elder students how to become mentors.
The school took part in the BeatBullying event, with sixth formers taught how they can support younger students.
It was supported by the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Trust, which provided a grant to schools across England at the start of the year.
Head teacher Kathryn Pullen said: "We have a zero tolerance policy on bullying and girls know that we’re a school where it’s okay to tell."
The young people will become jubilee mentors in the hope of stopping bullying and giving children a lifeline to speak out.
