On the parents page there is a new link to a "Parents' Guide" all about the grammar your children are learning about at school

As part of anti-bullying week; a local performance poet, Paul Jenkins, has written this poem and recorded Bury children giving a powerful performance of his poem, which is showing above. See if you can spot two of our children!
Why do you point at my trainers?
Why do you pull at my hair?
Why won’t you be my partner?
Why do you stand and stare?
Why did you trip me over
As I went to stand in the queue?
As I clattered hard in to the counter,
Nobody laughed at you.
Why would I put my hand up?
Do you giggle under your breath?
Why don’t you want me on your team
And tell me instead to be ref?
Why did you steal my best pencil
Before the start of that test?
Why do you say I’m scruffy
That I’m different from all the rest?
Why did you steal that ten pound note
That I had in my bag with the slip?
The money my mum had saved for a month
That meant I missed the school trip.
Why do I get no invites?
Why do I eat alone?
Why can nobody see how my head is down when I start to walk home?
Why do you send me those messages
About my mum or my dad?
Why do you slate me on chat rooms
In a group I know you call ‘sad’?
Why is it I bother trying when I know I’m not going to win?
That this world would clearly be better if it wasn’t stuck having me in?
One day soon I’ll turn invisible
And then I don’t know what you’ll do.
You’ll be all alone with no one to mock
And to bully the whole day through.
Perhaps when you don’t have a victim
And you feel isolated- you’ll see,
How horrible life is as a nothing
And just what it feels to be me…
