Anti-Bullying Week 2019
This week is ‘Anti-Bullying Week’, which is acknowledged at this time every year as a key focus across the country. Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages children to take action against bullying throughout the year.
The theme for this year's Anti-Bullying Week is 'Change Starts With Us'.
Small change. Big difference.
Whether it is verbal, physical, online or in-person, bullying has a significant impact on a child’s life well in to adulthood. By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with work together.
Change starts here.
Change starts now.
Change starts with us.
This year the goal is to inform schools and settings, children and young people, parents and carers to know that it takes a collective responsibility to stop bullying.
There are a number of activities that will be taking place throughout the week for the children to get involved with including 'odd socks' Friday.
