Highlights of 2013

Massive thank you to everyone that supported Anti-Bullying Week 2013.

ABA Week 2013 

Highlights of the week

Reaching over 1,000 schools and new member organisations, who joined our School and College Network or membership concerned about issues of cyber-bullying.

Working with internet security experts McAfee:

  • We released the 'Digital Deceptions: The Behaviour of Teens Online' report, showing that only 1 in 10 parents think their child is safe online
  • We ran a twitter competition to spread the word that we want the future to be 'safe, fun and connected'. Five lucky Twitter users won a year's subscription of McAfee's LiveSafe software
  • We created informative videos on cyberbullying for children, young people and parents.

Having over 300 media hits supporting this year's theme - Our young Ambassador Khushal was on BBC news and our National Co-ordinator Luke Robert's was on the BBC Breakfast couch to kick off Anti-Bullying Week 2013 on the Monday.

Developing lesson plans and top tips for children and young people, parents and professionals. See our cyberbullying resources for more information.

This survey of children, parents and teachers highlighted the importance of ABA's work as it revealed that  parents and teachers struggle to keep children safe online.

Going to the ABW2013 Official Film screening 

iFuture My Future, produced by Film Creatives for ABA, is a short film (for Key Stage 2) that follows Harry, who is being cyberbullied at school and loses his confidence. However as an aspiring young filmmaker who loves making films, we witness Harry use his talent to promote the positive use of technology and put a stop to the bullying. The film was showcased at Picture House cinema's across the country during Anti-Bullying Week and we were lucky enough to have VIP seats!
