Anti-Bullying Week 2017 will be taking place from 13th - 17th November 2017. We are currently working with young people to decide the theme for this year's week and will announce the theme, logo and competitions in May 2017. Watch this space!
Anti-Bullying Week in England is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and this year it took place from the 14th-18th November.
We were delighted to be sponsored by
SafeToNet and the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation. The week was delivered in partnership with Internet Matters.
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 in 2016 was 'Power for Good' and we had the following key aims:
To support children and young people to use their
Power for Good – by understanding the ways in which they are powerful and encouraging individual and collective action to stop bullying and create the best world possible.
To help parents and carers to use their
Power for Good – through supporting children with issues relating to bullying and working together with schools to stop bullying.
To encourage all teachers, school support staff and youth workers to use their
Power for Good – by valuing the difference they can make in a child’s life, and taking individual and collective action to prevent bullying and create safe environments where children can thrive.
