Frome schools march on bullying

A school child in Frome is seeing her idea put into action later this month when fellow pupils from across the Frome Learning Partnership join her and other Anti-Bullying Ambassadors from Vallis school to march through the town to take a stand on bullying. 

The march, supported by Frome Town Council will take place on 14 November during national Anti-Bullying week. It will see supporters set out from points across the Frome to demonstrate the strength of feeling amongst young people in the town.  

Mayor Rich Ackroyd said “Bullying can have a significant impact on our young people which is why a march which raises awareness across the wider community about the what can be done to address bullying is so important.”

Schools work with young people all year round to look at ways to stop bullying. Through Anti-Bullying ambassadors and projects that highlight the impact it has on children and young people it is hoped to keep instances of bullying to a minimum.

Children are sometimes faced with bullying behaviours outside of school and the aim of this march is to go a step further and engage parents and other adults to help make a difference.
