Anti-Bullying and Cyber Bullying

Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and this year will be from Monday 13th - Friday 17th November 2017.

The key aims of Anti-Bullying 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 affect 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.
