Certificates have been awarded to children who took part in an anti-bullying programme. Grove Park is one of nine primary schools that have hosted a Bully Beat workshop.
Led by the Songwriting Charity, it is designed to enthuse children about the process of lyric writing, singing, music arranging and production while expressing their thoughts on bullying. Recorded material is then available free for children to download.
The aim is that by listening to one another, respecting their friends and working together as a team, the youngsters create something that has an immediate and lasting impact on their peers, the school and the community.
Over the next two years the scheme will go to 30 primary and special schools, as well as pupil referral units across Swale.
Nicola Bottomley, anti-bullying coordinator at the school, said: “The children know there are different types of bullying and telling someone is the best way to make it stop.
“Hopefully they will never encounter bullying, but if they do, we believe they will be equipped with the skills to recognise what is happening and make it stop.”
