ENTERPRISING students created hard-hitting posters to highlight the serious consequences of bullying during Anti-Bullying Week.

The competition for Year Seven students at City of Portsmouth Boys formed part of an anti-bullying campaign that included creating blue handprints and signing a pledge underneath to fight bullying.

Debbie Chandler, head of Year Seven, said: ‘This is about highlighting the dangers of bullying and empowering the boys to do something about it.

‘It is important to raise awareness of what to do if you or someone you know is being bullied - and it’s a reminder for everybody that bullying is not tolerated at this school.

‘Everyone here has a responsibility in school to make sure we do our best to solve the problem.

‘Pupils are encouraged to tell us about any bullying that’s going on and as a result we deal with it very quickly.’

City Boys has a special room called The Base where older boys mentor younger boys who have any concerns.

Ms Chandler added: ‘We want pupils to feel safe.

‘Fortunately bullying incidents here are very low.’
