Children and young people in Sheffield consistently tell us that bullying is one of their biggest concerns. To address this issue we have run a 12-month ‘Circle of Friends’ pilot project during the academic year 2008-9 in one mainstream and one special primary school in Sheffield. The model has been used with great success in other cities nationally.

‘Circle of Friends’ is where a group of children, some of whom are viewed as vulnerable members of the school community, are invited to come together once a week to play games and take part in positive activities celebrating each other's gifts and talents. The children look at what makes a good friendship, why friendships are important and how to support other children in school through friendships.

Recently we have had the project externally evaluated by John Stead from the NSPPC. The project received a glowing report on how effective it has been at improving self esteem, friendships, social skills and emotional well-being. These effects have been noted by the teachers, head teachers, parents and the children themselves.

Now we have successfully run the project for 12 months we are developing the project further by delivering again in the 2 previously supported schools and, additionally, delivering in a nursery setting and a special secondary school. Through this we will support the existing schools to continue to facilitate their own 'Circle of Friends' and develop a training package to teach other schools how to set up their own 'Circle of Friends' groups.
