The theme in 2017 was 'All Different, All Equal' and it had the following aims:

  • empower children and young people to celebrate what makes them, and others, unique

  • help children and young people understand how important it is that every child feels valued and included in school, able to be themselves, without fear of bullying
  • encourage parents and carers to work with their school and talk to their children about bullying, difference and equality
  • enable teachers and other children’s workforce professionals 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.

Odd Socks Day 2017 

Anti-Bullying Week 2017 saw ABA hold its first ever Odd Socks Day. Working with Andy Day – cBeebies presenter and lead of Andy and the Odd Socks – to hold Odd Socks Days on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week in schools across England. Pupils and staff across schools in England wore their Odd Socks to celebrate what  it’s important to be yourself. It was a great success and we will be holding an Odd Socks Day in Anti-Bullying Week 2018.
