Anti-bullying week is from 12th-16th November.  During this time, special assemblies, including assemblies led by the School Council, will inform pupils about bullying and how to respond.  In addition to our special assemblies, the School Council will be providing other resources to promote our school ethos, which highlights that every child is valuable:

Statement of Ethos

As a school founded upon Christian principles, we believe in and celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and encourage all members of our community to show respect for all.

We seek the development of Character through Knowledge believing each individual has a duty to build a community, to strive to do their best, to show compassion for those in need, and to take responsibility for their own words and actions.

Cookstown High School seeks to develop young people who are independent learners and active citizens.
