YOUNGSTERS at a village primary school held a special competition to mark Anti- Bullying Week.

The pupils at Badby School designed posters stating why people shouldn’t bully others.

National Anti-Bullying Week ran from November 14 to 18 and this year focused on tackling verbal bullying.

Year six teacher Jane Moss said: “Because last week was anti-bullying week we wanted to raise the profile of it at the school.

“So we came up with the idea of a poster competition for the pupils.

“Bullying is a very important issue for pupils to learn about and we wanted to make sure we highlight it at the school.

“Pupils from year two upwards took part in the competition and all designed posters.

“We then had the chair of governors come in to judge the posters and each year group had a winner.”
