Lead Project Worker
A new programme being delivered by Bridgend say’s “End Bullying” (BsEB) is “Together Against Bullying (TAB)”.
Starting on Thursday 6th November in Coleg Y Dderwen; TAB is a holistic approach of working with and dealing with bullying and bullies within the school setting, working with, young people, teachers and parents over a 6 week period.
A parents session, inviting parents of those Young people who attend the school to come and speak with staff who will explain the TAB project to them and the work BsEB and the school are doing to reduce bullying incidents within the school. Welcoming questions from parents, and staff to give parents also some support and strategies to help their child through any bullying.
The programme will deliver supportive sessions to the bullied/victims of bullying, helping to raise confidence and self-esteem to the Young people and give them as many coping strategies as possible to help them through this difficult time.
Sessions for the ‘’alleged bullies’’ where staff will raise awareness of the effects of bullying and to hopefully change bullying behaviours and attitudes.
Teacher training sessions and a peer support programme which will train Young people within the school to be peer support workers specifically for Young people experiencing bullying, so that when BsEB finishes the TAB project; there is longevity and ongoing support.

BULLYING ADVICE FOR PARENTS

Simon Green paid a visit to Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen to share his experiences and advice with regards to bullying that he receives on a regular basis.
We would like to thank Simon for his presentation to Topaz College about the impact that name calling has had and the long term effect that it causes to both him and his family.
Pictured below are Simon Green with Topaz College and also our very own Rachel Jeffery who understands all to well the difficulties faced by disabled people.

VEUcan (Nathan’s Company) provides Disability Awareness Workshops to primary and secondary schools and is delivered by Nath Fernandes, an independent disability consultant. His workshops combines visual and physical activities to allow participants to experience various disabilities themselves, i.e. Blindness, Deafness and Cerebral Palsy (Naths own disability) which then can be related to when communicating with disabled people.
Nath Fernandes founded VEUcan in 2011 with the vision of promoting awareness of disability to primary and secondary schools as part of the PHSE or Citizenship curriculum with the ultimate aim of raising the importance to the same level as anti-bullying or drugs. Nath also aims to promote independence of people with physical disabilities and believes that, given the correct tools, they are able to achieve the same as the rest of the world regardless of their impairments.
Nath provides Disability Awareness Workshops to primary and secondary schools and also organisations with the main focus being upon promoting equality and independence but also, through activities, allowing participants to be able to experience the everyday obstacles that a disabled person faces.
