. PSHEeducation | Anti Bullying Week

Just a short one today: Anti-Bullying Week (coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance) is from the 16th - 20th November.

The key aims of the week are...
  1. 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;
  2. 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;
  3. 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;
  4. To equip teachers to respond effectively when children tell them they’re being bullied;
  5. 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.

If you would like to book me for Cyber Bullying or Respect and Bullying sessions with your schools, community groups or simply your family and friends please see my subject pages for more information and contact me as I have a few days and evenings still available.
