“I would like to say how fantastic you have been with our Peer Mentors. The training is more than worth the cost; you are so readily available both by email and to come into the school to support the team. Due to the status and excellent reputation of the mentors in school, the team has expanded from 12 pupils to 62 in just 18 months. Most of that is credit to the extensive training and celebration of success offered through BulliesOut. The whole school are impressed by the professionalism, maturity and empathy shown by the students and whilst part of this is their ‘nature’, I feel BulliesOut should take credit for the encouragement, honing and development of those traits”.
Naomi Sutherland, Monmouth Comprehensive School
Barry Comprehensive School has been proactive in tackling Bullying for over 15 years and is continually looking for ways to update and improve their processes. Our association with the charity BulliesOut is our most recent activity. A Peer2Peer training day was held for 12 pupils from year 7 to year 10. The students took part in a very productive day, which highlighted how they could help tackling this, most important of issues. The team from BulliesOut delivered an excellent training day and we look forward to continuing our association with BulliesOut. We have already booked a return visit early in the Autumn Term.
Sian Phillips, Barry Comprehensive School
The peer mentor training delivered by BulliesOut has provided the pupils of the school community with positive role models. The programme has led to greater interaction between the key stage 3 and 4 pupils and effectively builds confidence in the pupils to discuss their concerns. A culture of ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’ is beginning to develop and the senior pupils in the school providing the peer mediation and listening support get a real buzz and sense of reward. They recognise the responsible and vital role the programme plays in developing a supportive school community.
