We celebrated National Anti-Bullying week from Monday 13th to Friday 17th November. In school, all children took part in a number of assemblies, discussions and activities around the language of bullying, difference and equality. The main celebration from the week has been the children's comments that we are all part of one community. They worked hard to think of ways to make others feel special and unique.
The aim of the week was to:
- Empower children and young people to celebrate what makes them, and others, unique.
- Help children and young people to understand how important it is that every child feels valued and included in school, able to be themselves, without fear of bullying.
- Encourage parents and carers to work with their school and talk to their children about bullying, difference and equality.
- •Enable teachers and school support staff to celebrate what makes us ‘all different, all equal’ by celebrating difference and equality and taking individual and collective action to prevent bullying, creating safe environments where children can be themselves.
