Youths at anti-bullying summit
A GROUP of Clevedon School pupils travelled to London to take part in a summit organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA).
During their time at Central Hall in Westminster, Alex Wood, Beth Timms and Benedickta Fones discussed their experiences and ideas about tackling bullying behaviour.
Presentations were also made to an audience of professionals chaired by the ABA president, Esther Rantzen.
Sue Walker, North Somerset Council’s teaching and learning adviser who accompanied the students on the visit, said: “Alex, Beth and Beni are all cyber mentors, available to talk to and support young people who may be on the receiving end of cyber bullying.
“The presentation they gave was really good, talking about measures schools can develop and adopt to help stop cyber bullying.

As a result of the day spent in Westminster on November 17, a report is being produced to be presented to Government about how anti-bullying measures can be taken forward.
