Anti-Bullying Performance – Superhero School

Superhero School is an anti-bullying performance and workshop for the whole school.

We took the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s theme for 2016 and turned it into an accessible, fun and engaging 45 minute anti-bullying performance which can be watched and enjoyed by everyone from Reception to Year 6.

Max loves science and he enjoys school, but he doesn’t enjoy being picked on by Mikey.  Mikey thinks it’s just a laugh, and he’s too busy with his YouTube videos to worry about Max’s feelings.  One day Max goes to school as normal, but when he gets there everything has changed.  He finds himself at a school for superheroes – meeting the strangest characters – but learning a lot about himself and what to do about bullying.

The play helps children to think about:

  • The ways we can use our ‘power for good’ to stop and prevent bullying
  • How to keep yourself and others safe
  • Difference and diversity
  • The importance of kindness
  • What to do if you are being bullied – who to talk to and where to go for support
  • How we make our schools fantastic places to be!

The performance is accompanied by a free workshop for a selected class and a resource pack. Extra workshops are also available.

Bookings are now being taken for Superhero School, which will be on tour in November 2018 to coincide with National Anti-Bullying Week. The play links perfectly into the theme for this year which is Choose Respect. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.

Superhero School will be visiting schools in the following areas in 2018:

  • Bedfordshire
  • Northamptonshire
  • Cambridgeshire
  • Buckinghamshire
  • Hertfordshire
  • Birmingham
  • Coventry
  • Leicestershire

If the area your school is in is not listed, then get in touch – we may still be able to visit you.

“Excellent, captivating performance! Caught the attention of EYFS to Year 6. Great clear messages – simply fab!” Steph Halliwell, Garrett Hall Primary, Wigan

“Children loved the workshop – they enjoyed getting into character and were encouraged to give their opinion.  It was great that every child thought of a talent – they all spoke about their talent on the way out of the hall and this has enhanced their self esteem.” Peter Burcher, Learning Mentor, St Michael’s Primary, Liverpool

“Pitched just right for all ages, very topical and covered all types of bullying. Dynamic, engaging and very relevant. Thanks!” Miss Watt, Year 6 teacher, High Oakham Primary School Nottingham 

“The performance was excellent – it applied to a range of ages and all children’s moods changed as the storyline was told and they began to understand the feelings involved. In the workshop children really considered the feelings of others and how bullying affects other people and how to change this.” David Middlesborough, St John’s CE Primary, Stockport
