The posters are up and the service is now live!
Text and Tell was launched during Anti-Bullying week and KS3 designed this name and the logo for the posters which are now all over the Bridge.
Pupils generally feel safe and happy in the Bridge:
94% of pupils feel safe here,
80% of pupils agreeing pupils behave well here,
90% of pupils agreeing that if bullying or harassment occurs staff deal with it.
(from KS3 and 4 Pupil Survey Autumn term)
However, from time to time everyone needs someone to "talk" to or to share a worry with, either about themselves or a friend. Pupils can text the hotline in confidence and a senior member of staff will respond appropriately, also in confidence.
We also have a worry box on the corridor and all staff are available to support pupils during the day, especially at break and lunchtimes.
