At Bevois Town Primary School we use this week as an opportunity to help our school shine a spotlight on bullying and encourage all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying throughout the year.
The theme this year is ‘Make a Noise’.
Too often, we are silent when we see bullying take place, silent about the hurt bullying causes, and silent when we hear bullying dismissed as ‘just banter’; It doesn't have to be this way.
Of course, we won’t like everyone and we don’t always agree, but we can choose respect and unity.
This Anti-Bullying Week we will be coming together to have discussions about what bullying means to us, how banter can turn into something more hurtful, and what we can do to stop bullying. Together, we can make a difference and take a stand against bullying.
From the playground to Parliament, and from our phones to our homes, let’s make a noise about bullying!
