To kick off Anti-Bullying Week, children and staff wore odd socks to school to show that we stand up to bullying and that it is okay to be different. We had every colour, pattern and length of sock you can imagine as the children embraced and celebrated their individuality.
Each year, the Anti Bullying Alliance works with hundreds of young people to develop a theme for the week and this year the theme is ‘Make A Noise About Bullying’.
Our focus this week is to discuss what bullying means to us, and talk about how our words can be hurtful to others. Sometimes, bullying can be dismissed as a joke, a bit of fun or banter, and too often we stay silent. We want to ensure that our children know that it doesn’t have to be this way, and that even though we may not always agree with others and may not be friends with everyone, we can choose to be respectful, one of our school values.
