Its time to say No! Make a noise to support and raise awareness this for Anti-Bullying Week.
Anti-Bullying Week in England 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.
How can I get involved?
Email your MP and ask them to show their support for tackling bullying in our schools, communities and online by attending our Anti-Bullying Week event in the Houses of Parliament on 19th November.
