CHALLENGING the behaviour of bullies was just one of the issues tackled by the St Neots Schools Forum during a series of events for anti-bullying week.

All the primary and secondary schools in the St Neots area and surrounding villages, have been working together to understand bullying and how they can challenge it.

The aim is to ensure that young people, parents, and school staff, have a common understanding of the problem and its effects and create strategies to support young people.

During the launch week, there were special assemblies and a design-a-leaflet competition. The winning leaflets from each school will be printed and distributed to parents this term.
