Anti-Bullying Week in England is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and this year it will be held from 14th-18th November 2016.
In 2015, the theme was
‘Make a Noise about bullying’ with the #antibullyingweek.
VIDEO We want to say a big:
To all those who supported our week. It was a huge success and we were so proud of all the activity from young people, schools, parents and many many more organisations and individuals that help each year to make Anti-Bullying Week such an incredible and diverse week.
We are currently conducting a thorough evaluation of the week and will come back soon with our highlights of the week. Thanks!
The key aims of Anti-Bullying Week 2015 were...
To empower children and young people to make a noise about bullying – whether it is happening to them or to someone else, face to face or online;
To help parents and carers have conversations with their children about bullying – both as a way of preventing bullying, and to help children who are worried about bullying;
To encourage ‘talking schools’ where all children and young people are given a safe space to discuss bullying and other issues that affect their lives, and are supported to report all forms of bullying;
To equip teachers to respond effectively when children tell them they’re being bullied; and
To raise awareness of the impact of bullying on children’s lives if they don’t tell anyone it’s happening – or if they are not given appropriate support – with a focus on the impact on mental health.
The Anti-Bullying Alliance worked in partnership with Barclays for Anti-Bullying Week 2015.
