Said Caroline: “The pupils at Green Top were really keen to beat the bullies. I don’t think even adults who remember being bullied as children are always aware of the many forms bullying takes today – including cyber-bullying occurring when children are just playing online games with other classmates. They all agreed that if you start being bullied – tell others – tell your friends and tell adults. Bullies only win if their bullying stays hidden.”
Headteacher, Neil Butler said: “'Green Top School launched their very successful Anti-Bullying week with help from Caroline Flint. Caroline spoke of her childhood and what happens when you fall out with friends. Caroline went on to praise the school for having, playground buddies, feelings circles, friendship contracts and an emotional well-being co-ordinator to help the children solve their problems together. Caroline joined a feeling circle with Class 6 to hear how the children articulated their feelings and offered support to one another.'
