School Council & WWF Green Ambassadors.
Anti Bullying Week 16th - 20th November
The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2020 was United Against Bullying. We worked hard this week to learn about anti-bullying and to focus on being kind to others (our school motto). We continue to develop our school community to ensure that bullying does not happen in our school, that everyone feels safe, accepted and happy.
We started the week wearing Odd Socks which was good fun but an important message to tell others that bullying is not allowed in our school.
School council also worked with Mrs Russell to update and improve the Anti-Bullying Policy.
At Victoria Primary School, we intend to use School Council to create pupils who understand their own learning and support the learning of their peers. Our School Council is led by pupil passions and will allow this to choose the projects that it supports so that children have a sense of responsibility and ownership.
It is imperative for children at Victoria Primary School to begin the next stage of their education knowing that they have the learning skills they need to achieve their aspirations. They have a curiosity of the world around them and a sense of their place in it.
This intended outcome is to create inspired young people who have a responsibility to being the best that they can be personally, but also a moral responsibility to building a better community as they go forward and make choices of their own as young people.

Creative Earth is an art competition for people aged 16 and under from across the UK, run by the UN COP26 Climate Change Conference in collaboration with WWF.
As part of the Together for Our Planet campaign, we’re inviting young people to get creative and show global leaders the world they want to live in.
Whether it’s green forests and garden cities, clear skies and wind turbines or oceans teeming with life – we want you to paint, draw or design a piece of art that shows how you’d like our planet to look in the future.
Enter the competition to be in with a chance of having your artwork displayed at COP26 and show the rest of the world your vision for the future.
From December onwards, we want you to help us to save water to protect our planet. Our focus around school and at home will be SAVING WATER!
Did you Know? Leaving the tap running while you brush your teeth wastes 4-6Litres of water! Simple changes like turning the tap off can make a HUGE difference! There are lots of other easy ways to save water;
- Turn your tap off when you do not need it.
- Have a shower instead of having a bath.
- Save water for your garden in a water butt and use watering cans instead of hoses.
- Use a full load when using washing machines and dishwashers.
- Fix any dripping taps.
- Buy a water saving bag for your toilet cistern.
