by | Jun 19, 2020

The new theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2020 has been announced, it is… 

United Against Bullying

 

The new theme provides the opportunity to discuss a range of anti-bullying topics with your school such as: 

Everyone has a part to play…

For schools, this is a powerful message for students. We can encourage students to think about the power that they have to make a positive difference at their school, even through seemingly small actions.

 

Unity and Teamwork…

The theme of united against bullying also emphasises the importance of working together, and celebrating difference. This can be used to reinforce a culture of inclusivenes and acceptance with your school culture. 

Here are five resources that you can access now, to help you, your school staff and all of your students, to be united against bullying as students start to return to school: 

 

1. The Anti-Bullying Alliance: Tackling Race and Faith Targeted Bullying Face to Face and Online
