Anti-Bullying Week 2019 – Change Starts With Us

Anti-Bullying Week 2018 had the theme ‘Choose Respect.’ It was a huge success and reached an amazing 79% of schools in England. And the same survey also found that 96% of pupils agree that Anti-Bullying Week raises awareness about bullying.

This year Anti-Bullying Week 2019 will be celebrated by Schools nationwide throughout November. The new theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2019 has now been announced.

For Anti-Bullying Week 2019 the theme will be…

The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2019 is ‘Change Starts With Us’.

‘Change Starts With Us.’

The Anti-Bullying Alliance worked with over 1,000 children and young people to decide on the theme. This years theme is all about encouraging us to think about how making seemingly small changes, and make a big difference.

‘Small change. Big difference.’

We love this years theme. Bullying can start off small, but over time can seriously damage long term well-being. Tackling bullying in schools can represent a challenge, and this years theme reminds us that through regular, small changes we can have a huge impact in reducing incidents of bullying in our schools.

This year there will also be a special focus on online bullying, which is a great way of responding to this increasing trend.

Odd Socs Day will be held on Monday 11th November 2019
