Anti-Bullying Week 2015

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

This year’s Anti-Bullying Week runs from November 16 to 20 and is focusing on the damage that bullying causes to mental health and wellbeing – encouraging pupils and schools to #MakeANoise about bullying.

As always, a range of resources are on offer to schools from the website of the organisers, the Anti-Bullying Alliance, including lesson plans, assembly outlines, posters, classroom presentations and more.

Among the resources is a Topsy and Tim poster that has been produced by Ladybird to help schools introduce messages of kindness with early years students (pictured).

Among the aims of the week are to help parents and carers to have conversations with their children about bullying.

Furthermore, the campaign wants 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.

The website also offers teachers a range of advice on bullying, including how to support children who are being bullied and how to react if a child tells you they have been bullied.
