Simply Education takes a stand against bullying in schools

Specialist education recruitment agency, Simply Education Ltd, is running a competition in schools aimed at stamping out bullying. The competition, which coincides with the national anti-bullying month, is open to pupils of UK schools only and will run until 1st December.

Simply Education is inviting schools from across the UK to take part in their & lsquo;Beat the Bullying’ campaign, which is aimed at raising awareness of bullying in both primary and secondary schools. The competition requires pupils to create and submit pictures, poems, narratives or any expression they feel makes a stand against bullying.

A winner will be picked from one primary and one secondary school in each region Simply Education supplies teaching staff. A second draw will take place for two national winners, one primary and one secondary school. Prizes up for grabs include various books vouchers for regional contestants and two iPad 3’s for the overall national winners. A winner from one primary and one secondary school will be picked for each of the following regions:

Bedfordshire

Hertfordshire

Cambridgeshire

Buckinghamshire

Northamptonshire

Leicestershire

Warwickshire

Oxfordshire

West Midlands

Essex

It’s not just the pupils who will benefit from this competition, for every 15 entries that a school sends through to Simply Education, they will give the school &pound20 in book vouchers. In addition, the school with a winning regional pupil will receive &pound100 in book vouchers and the school with the winning national pupil will receive &pound300 in book vouchers.

Adam Shulman, Director of Simply Education, expressed his feelings on their anti-bulling campaign: “Here at Simply Education, we believe that each child deserves the opportunity to learn in a safe and happy environment. Each pupil should be enabled to learn and grow in surroundings which provide both knowledge and protection. It is on this premise that we formed our & lsquo;Beat the Bullying’ campaign.

We wanted to reiterate to our schools that bullying is a serious and detrimental force in the lives of many children. We hope that this campaign will not only raise awareness on this relevant issue, but will also enable schools to reinstate their anti-bullying procedures and provide support for those affected by bullying.”
