Anti-bullying Week 2015: 16th-20th November

abw_twitter_black_500x250Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and this year is from the 16th – 20th November. The theme is ‘Make a Noise about bullying’ with the #antibullyingweek.

The key aims of the week are…

  • 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.
