Anti-Bullying Week And The Impact of The Anti-Bullying Alliance
Research from the Anti-Bullying Alliance reveals that….
‘Children and young people who were involved in school bullying enjoyed going to school less, had poorer relationships with their teachers, and were less likely to feel safe or included within the school.’
This is one of many reasons why it’s so important to make a national effort around dealing with bullying.
The Anti-Bullying Alliance was established by the NSPCC and the National Children’s Bureau. The Anti-Bullying Alliance has done an incredible job of increasing the awareness around bullying in UK. Anti-Bullying Week which will run from 12th November – 16th November this year is now a significant event in the calendar for Schools in the UK.
Last years theme was ‘All Different All Equal’ and the popularity of Anti-Bullying Week reached a new high. The Social media reach for 2017 saw over six million impressions on ABA content, that was an increase of 370% on the previous year.
The bottom line is, all this increased awareness will make a positive difference in reducing incidents of bullying in our schools.
We are thrilled to have become associate members of The Anti-Bullying Alliance. We look forward to helping them raise awareness and reduce bullying across the UK.
So when we visit schools with our Anti-Bullying Workshops and Anti-Bullying Shows this November, we will use #antibullyingweek to shout about the fantastic work the teachers and students do.
