Pupils sang their hearts out in the fight against bullying.

Year 4 children from All Saints Lower School in Clifton, Derwent Lower School in Henlow, Langford Lower School, Meppershall Lower School and Raynsford Lower School in Henlow joined Year 5 students at Henlow Academy.

The anti-bullying singing event featured songs about friendship, bullies and helping others.

The middle school organises the session on an annual basis.

Margaret Newman, head of Year 5 at Henlow Academy, said: “The transition from lower to middle school can be quite scary for Year 4 pupils.

“This is why we feel that it’s really important to establish links with our feeder lower schools and work together across schools to make the move from lower to middle school easier.

“We really enjoy singing songs together and this event gives each school the opportunity to sing up against bullying.”

Parents were invited to attend the mass singing session. They heard the youngsters join together to perform With a Little Help From My Friends.
