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…
‘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
Odd Socs day was a great success last year, and it will be happening again on Monday 11th November 2019. Find out more here.
Anti-Bullying School Staff Award
Your students can nominate a teacher at your school for the Anti-Bullying School Staff Award. This is a great way of recognising the great work that a teacher has done in responding to bullying, and promoting awareness around bullying.
All nominated teachers will receive a certificate, find out how your students can nominate a teacher at your school here.
At OpenView Education we will be touring our Anti-Bullying Workshops and Anti-Bullying shows for schools throughout Anti-Bullying Week 2019. Our new workshops and show support the ‘Change Starts With Us’ theme.
There will also be new resources in the coming months as well. We’ll be sending out updates about these as we approach Anti-Bullying Week 2019. You can also keep an eye out on the Anti-Bullying Anti-Bullying Alliance website here.
