This week Bigfoot look forward to working with schools to help promote positive relationships through a great range of workshops and assemblies.
Bullying can be painful and a sensitive subject to talk about. Something we are very aware can happen within schools. It can come in many different forms which is why we offer such a wide range of programmes. This enables us to explore these issues with children in depth. We want for children to recognise what bullying can look like, how they can avoid it and who they should talk to about it.
We will explore cyber bullying, respect, self-respect as well as the importance of embracing and celebrating differences. This is something that Bigfoot continue to offer schools throughout the year as we recognise just how important it is to do so.
Our approach to deliver these workshops spans from plays to story-telling with the children. Additionally, students are given the opportunity to participate in drama and art activitie.s
We have delivered our programmes to many schools who have found our workshops and assemblies to be beneficial for both teachers and pupils alike:
“The Bigger Picture programme introduces children to familiar characters affected by bullying in an engaging way. The children were hooked from the start and it sparked lots of debate in class!” Jennifer Crabbe, Stockwell Primary School
“As always, the friendly and pro-active Bigfoot team gave excellent positive feedback to staff and pupils, whilst enabling pupils to receive strong anti bullying messages in an easily-digestible form.” Nic Mehew, North Ealing Primary School
“Relevant and compelling content delivered in an accessible way to junior aged children.” Kathryn Dray, Stamford Green Primary School
