Anti-Bullying Week in England is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and will be from 16th – 20th November 2015. The theme is ‘Make a Noise about bullying’ with the #antibullyingweek.

You can enter their Anti-Bullying Week competition with classic musical, Wicked.

Here is the Anti-Bullying Week video for 2015:

The key aims of the week are…
  • To empower children and young people to make a noise about bullying – whether it is happening to them or to someone else, face to face or online;

  • To help parents and carers have conversations with their children about bullying – both as a way of preventing bullying, and to help children who are worried about bullying;

  • To encourage ‘talking schools’ where all children and young people are given a safe space to discuss bullying and other issues that effect their lives, and are supported to report all forms of bullying;

  • To equip teachers to respond effectively when children tell them they’re being bullied; and

  • To raise awareness of the impact of bullying on children’s lives if they don’t tell anyone it’s happening – or if they are not given appropriate support – with a focus on the impact on mental health.
