On Tuesday 4th December our choir, 'Raise the Roof', performed at the Bridgewater Hall as part of the Clic Sargent concerts. We are the first school from Bury to have been invited to sing and we absolutely stole the show! I couldn't have been any prouder of our wonderful children and their beautiful singing.

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…
