Anti-Bullying Week 2015 falls between the 16th and the 20th November. It is co-ordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and this year’s theme is ‘Make a Noise About Bullying‘. See their video below.
Sutton Life Centre offers schools an ideal location for school trips to support learning on anti-bullying week. Our Life Skills Tours cover a wide range of topics from bullying and internet safety to personal safety, using public transport and the impacts of anti-social behaviour and crime. We also have workshops available, including internet safety which covers some of the issues with cyber-bullying over social media.
For more information about how our school trips can support your school, please check our PSHE School Trips page.
Aims of the Week
- 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 effect 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.
