BIG Win For Stockport Academy
/ Categories: News
Stockport Academy students and staff are celebrating after the school has been honoured with a national anti-bullying award.
We have achieved The BIG (Bullying Intervention Group) Award for the fourth year in a row, and are the only school in Stockport to be recognised with this prestigious accolade. The BIG Award celebrates schools that have proven their excellence in tackling and preventing bullying.
The school was commended on its wide-ranging approach to taking on the issue, including extensive staff training, parental consultation and inclusive culture within school.
Judges also praised our peer mentor student leaders, which involves a group of Year 10 students offering their support to younger members of the school.
Val McFarlane, Director of Bullying Intervention Group, said: “This is a school which does not tolerate bullying. They have an excellent anti-bullying policy, regular staff training in mental health issues including bullying, awareness raising activities including inter-curriculum work and they have a robust monitoring and recording system in place.”
Stockport Academy Principal Mrs McCann said: “We work hard to create a friendly, welcoming and inclusive environment and operate a robust anti-bullying policy to support this.
“We are incredibly proud to have received this recognition for the fourth year running, which is testament to the efforts of everyone at the school.”
