14th – 18th November 2016
Carry on the momentum of Stand Up Day and get ready to support this year’s Anti-Bullying Week. Anti-Bullying Week in England is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and will be held from 14th-18th November 2016.
Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying – encouraging children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying all year round. A recent survey found that 87% of the schools that take part in Anti Bullying Week say that it improves the school’s anti-bullying practice and 83% saying it increases levels of respect and kindness.
This year’s theme is Power for Good and the key aims are:
- 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.
