As part of Easterside Academy’s work during Anti-Bullying Week, which the Middlesbrough Primary school call Friendship week, their group of Key Stage 2 HeadStarters took part in a pupil drop-in within school.
Working with the school’s Chair of Governors Mr Elliott, the HeadStarters spoke to pupils from Year 1-6 to discuss their role in school as peer supporters as well as talking through a range of important topics including being kind, friendships, feeling safe, protected characteristics and mental health.
The HeadStarters also helped students to be able to identify key adults in the school who they can go to for support and how those adults can help them with any problems they may face.
Headteacher Delyth Linacre told us that “The HeadStarters were amazing and some really mature conversations were had!”
