Anti-Bullying Week 2018

Our Anti-Bullying Ambassador Team have been involved in organising this year’s Anti-Bullying Week (12th-16th November).

Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying throughout the year. The theme this year is: ’Choose Respect.'

Aims: 

The Anti-Bullying Alliance, amongst many people, believe that bullying behaviour is a choice and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school; in their homes and communities and online.

This Anti-Bullying Week we want children to understand:

  • The definition of respect.
  • That bullying behaviour is a choice.
  • That we can respectfully disagree with each other ie we don’t have to be best friends or always agree, but we do have to respect each other.
  • That we all have to choose respect face to face and online.

 

During Anti-Bullying Week this year we are holding ‘Odd Socks Day’ on Monday 12th November, along with many other activities, competitions and lessons.
