We are very honoured to have won an Anti-bullying Award. We won the award for the ‘Most Innovative Anti-Bullying Team’. We attended a celebration event at the Council Chambers in Sunderland. We had to give a presentation about what we do at Burnside and then received the award from the Mayor.


Some members of the School Council visited one of out Trust partner schools to share all the ideas about the name for the Trust Attendance Mascot.

We debated each name and then put the decision to a vote. The winning name is Skittle.

Week of 12th November – Anti-Bullying Week

We are all coming into school on Monday 12th November in Odd Socks to celebrate difference. We have put together some Pupil Questionnaires to give out this week to collect the views and feelings of children across school. We will then use the results to look at what we can carry on doing well and what we might be able to help change.
