Anti-Bullying Week is taking place this week, coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages all children, teachers and parents to act against bullying throughout the year.
The theme this year is ‘Power for Good’ with the following key aims:
- 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.
