Stop Don’t Bully Me

‘Stop Don’t Bully Me’ is an original Bully Beat anti-bullying song written by children at Tunstall Primary School, Sittingbourne, one of 30 primary schools in the Swale District of North Kent taking part in this project.

Bully Beat has been designed to enthuse primary aged children about the process of lyric writing, singing, music arranging and contemporary production whilst promoting a serious anti-bullying message. We’re using informal music education and literacy working to communicate a range of key messages. Every song is written by the children. We record, produce and publish the songs at the end of the process.

The Bully Beat in project in Swale is supported by our partners The Angus Lawson Memorial Trust and First Class Business Solutions. Without their support, we would not have been able to deliver such a large scale project. Interest in Bully Beat is extending right across Kent with schools in Medway showing a keenness to get involved.

We are currently working with up to 30 primary schools across the district in 2013/2014 and 2014/2015. More schools than we have funding for are wanting to get involved. If your school wants to join the Bully Beat project, get in touch with john@songwritingcharity.org

    Really proud of this body of work our charity is conducting down in the Swale district of Kent. The lyrics are sharp and insightful. The messages are clear and without ambiguity. While we all fixate on cyberbullying, many hundreds of young children are thinking about choices they make, the actions of others, their own behaviour, what bullying is and isn’t and much more. They are becoming more confident, finding their voice, and becoming braver. If we can affect a deep and meaningful change in behaviour at this stage in their young lives, then they will have much more than just a fighting chance as they progress through their education. They’ll become truly empowered and equipped to counter bullying behaviour.
