Anti-Bullying Conference

All Different, All Equal, Think for Yourself!

The Washington Locality Anti Bullying Conference was held at Washington Academy for the 5th year running. We had 13 feeder Primary Schools in attendance with 66 children. On the afternoon we had 3 Washington Secondary schools in attendance with 59 students. All students behaved impeccably.

The conference is designed to be interactive and informative with keynote speakers and 3 interactive workshops which raise awareness and provide resources for delegates around bullying issues, offer the opportunity of improving practice in managing bullying and give an opportunity to network with other anti-bullying teams across the locality.

The aim is to raise awareness around bullying issues and to explore and provide strategies to combat it for children and young people in a variety of settings.

Workshops were delivered by Sunderland People first, Sunderland Young Carers, Dorothy Maddison, Mark Lloyd and Jane Adamson (knetic/CEOP).
