Youngsters from several primary schools learned how to beat bullying in a workshop organised and hosted by Latimer Arts College.

About 60 children from Cranford, Millbrook, Meadowside, Isham and Barton Seagrave Primary Schools took part in the event as they are all feeder primary schools for Latimer College.

Latimer’s assistant principal said the day was about giving the visiting pupils information about what they can do if they or someone they know is being bullied as well as providing the feeder primary schools with support in the form of peer mentoring for young pupils.

She added: “The activities on the day are like playground games and workshops, but they all carry an important message.”

Two of the Latimer students helping out on the day were Sam Orbell, 15, from Barton Seagrave, who is on the National Anti-Bullying Ambassador Youth Board.

Sam recently met Nick Gibbs, Minister of State for Schools, to talk about anti-bullying and how to tackle cyber bullying, and also paid a visit to Facebook’s European headquarters in Dublin and brought back information for fellow pupils about staying safe on the internet.

Year 12 student Emma Nannery, 16, also took part. Emma was recently highly commended for her song Shell in the Northamptonshire anti-bullying song competition run by Novitate
