As part of Anti-Bullying week, the children across the federation put together some ideas about how they feel about bullying and what we could do to prevent it. With the help of a local poet, Juli Taylor, we have produced our own anti-bullying poem.

 

You can find a recording of the poem, read by Juli, on her YouTube Channel. https://youtu.be/pG54PYsVFjU

 

Thank you to the children and Juli for providing us with such a thoughtful poem.

 

GROW UP, BULLIES!

 

By The Pupils of The North Cotswolds Schools Federation

 

(Cold Aston, Swell, Longborough, St James and Ebrington)

 

 

There are horrible words

That you may have heard

Some you don’t even understand fully

When someone calls you names

Again and again

That person is simply a bully

 

This poem will show

That even though

You might face a bully each day

If you're strong inside

Keep your spirit and pride

They can never take your smile away

 

Would YOU do the right thing

If you saw bullying?

Could you be courageous and brave?

Would you say 'That's enough!

You think you're so tough

But grow up! That's no way to behave'

 

In Years One and Two

You're the smallest in school

So it feels bad if someone's unkind

You feel scared and alone

All on your own

Stress and worry build up in your mind

 

You think 'Why pick on me?

Why can't you see

It's not nice and makes me want to cry

You boss me around

Push me to the ground

You're not sorry and don’t explain why'

 

Would YOU do the right thing

If you saw bullying?

Could you be courageous and brave?

Would you say 'That's enough!

You think you're so tough

But grow up! That's no way to behave'

 

In Years Three and Four

You learn a lot more

You're older and start to get bigger

But bullies get bigger too

And say things that aren't true

Call you ugly, punch, kick, point and snigger

 

They leave you bruised

Frustrated, confused

They think they can be Judge and Jury

Their words sting your ears

You're tormented by fears

And puzzled by all of their fury

 

Would YOU do the right thing

If you saw bullying?

Could you be courageous and brave?

Would you say 'That's enough!

You think you're so tough

But grow up! That's no way to behave'

 

In Years Five and Six

You're growing up quick

But the bullies are still trying hard

They're learning new ways

To tear up your days

To leave your mind and your body all scarred

 

They won't leave you alone

On your tablet or phone

They can hurt you wherever you go

They make fun of your choices

And use mocking voices

You feel powerless and scared to say no

 

Would YOU do the right thing

If you saw bullying?

Could you be courageous and brave?

Would you say 'That's enough!

You think you're so tough

But grow up! That's no way to behave'

 

Bullies love playing games

And calling you names

That hurt and are so full of spite

They won't pick on the strong

What they do is wrong

But you don't need your fists to fight...

 

The first step is just

TELL SOMEONE YOU TRUST

Because bullies hate being found out

If we all stick together

We'll beat bullies forever

And that’s what growing up is all about

 

So please do the right thing

If you see bullying

Please be courageous and brave

Say 'STOP! That's enough!

You’re a bully, not tough

Just grow up, and learn to behave'
