Anti-Bullying Week 2015 - 16th to 20th November
This year the theme for ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ is:
‘Make a NOISE about bullying’
At Carr Hill we are committed to stamping out bullying throughout the year, not just for one week. We are focusing our assemblies and circle time activities on an anti-bullying theme for this particular week, along with schools around the country.
It is a great opportunity to reinforce the message about how Carr Hill approaches bullying, including ensuring our pupils know what to do if they are being bullied, and that everyone should take bullying seriously.
Every class will be creating something special for their class blog to help celebrate ‘Anti-Bullying Week’.
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.
