Anti-Bullying Week 2018 - Choose Respect
On Thursday 8th November the whole school watched a fantastic Anti-Bullying show called ‘The Power of One’. The show explained the different types of bullying and the roles that different people can play – the bully, the target and the bystander. It taught us how to become an upstander and support others when they are being bullied. The show was very entertaining and taught us many valuable and important messages.

On Thursday we watched the anti-bullying show ‘The Power of One’. We really enjoyed it! It talked about physical, cyber and verybal bullying. It was interesting to see that even people who seem fine on the surface could be going through bullying. Now we know that if we are ever in a situation where we are being bullied, we have people on our side. The message behind the show was that if we stand up for others rather than standing by when bullying takes place, then we all have the power to overcome bullying.

This year, the theme for Anti-Bullying week is ‘Choose Respect’. The children will be working on some of the following issues during the week:
- The definition of respect
- That bullying is a behaviour choice
- That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
- That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online
To celebrate the week, we will be watching a show called 'The Power Of One' on 8th November. We are asking the children to come to school dressed in odd socks on Monday 12th November. This will be an opportunity for children to express themselves and appreciate individuality and uniqueness! No donation is required; the aim is to raise awareness of the campaign.
This year, the theme for Anti-Bullying week is ‘All Different, All Equal’. The idea is to help children and young people celebrate what makes them, and others, unique and help them understand why it’s important that every child feels included in school able to be themselves without fear of bullying.
The children in school will be working on anti-bullying issues in class. To celebrate the theme of us all being different, we are asking the children to come to school dressed in odd socks on Monday 13th November.
