Anti Bullying Week
On Monday 13th November, children came to school wearing odd socks to mark the start of our Anti Bullying Week. Odd Socks Day, run in conjunction with the Anti-Bullying Alliance, is held to encourage our children and staff to express themselves, celebrate their individuality and what makes us unique!
Throughout the week, children took part in anti-bullying activities within their classes and were encouraged to spread kindness! Our Kindness Ambassadors and School Councillors worked hard to prepare activities for the children and did an amazing job carrying out random acts of kindness, whilst looking out for kind acts and running lunchtime kindness clubs. On Friday, the whole school came together to finish the week off by ‘making some noise’. Children and staff formed a circle around the school and with instruments, cheering and clapping we made as much noise as we could to highlight that together we have the confidence to speak out if we see, hear, or experience bullying. Too often, we are silent when we see bullying take place, silent about the hurt bullying causes, and silent when we hear bullying dismissed as ‘just banter’.
Together, we can make a difference and take a stand against bullying.
