Anti-Bullying Week 2017
Anti-Bullying Week 2017 is being held between the 13th and 17th November of this year and is organised by Anti-Bullying Alliance.
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 ‘All Different, All Equal’ with the aims:
To empower children to celebrate what makes them, and others, unique.
- To help children understand how important it is that every child feels valued and included in school, able to be themselves, without fear of bullying.
- To enable teachers and other adults to celebrate what makes us ‘all different, all equal’ and celebrate difference and equality. Encouraging them to take individual and collective action to prevent bullying, creating safe environments where children can be themselves.
As well as promoting all of our values throughout the year Anti-Bullying Week is a great opportunity to reinforce the message about how we can approach bullying. This includes ensuring the pupils know what to do if they are being bullied, how it makes us feel and how we deal with anyone who bullies. Bullying can have a long-term impact on friendships, self-esteem as well as health and wellbeing.
Throughout the week we will be completing many different activities that relate to the theme of this year- ‘All Different, All Equal’.
