                                          Anti-Bullying Week 2018  : Choose "Respect"

  • The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2018 is: ‘Choose Respect’ and Anti-Bullying Week runs from:12 - 16  November 2018.
  • We will hold Odd Socks Day for Anti-Bullying Week again on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week (12 November 2018)

 

The theme for this year's Anti-Bullying Week is to choose respect over bullying.

 

Following a consultation with over 800 children, teachers and members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, it emerged that a top priority was showing that bullying is a behaviour choice, and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school, in their homes and communities, and online.

 

The aims of this week are to support schools and other settings to help children and young people, school staff, parents and other professionals who work with children to understand:

 

  • 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.

 

The Anti-Bullying Alliance, with the continued support of SafeToNet, will be developing a set of free cross-curricular teaching resources to support both primary and secondary schools to embrace the theme of respect.

 

CBeebies star Andy Day and Anti-Bullying Alliance patron, and his band Andy and the Odd Socks, are supporting Anti-Bullying Week 2018 and are encouraging students to wear odd socks to school during the campaign to show their support and raise money for a good cause.

 

At Morpeth All Saints we believe everyone should be treated with: 

forgiveness     friendship    honesty    love    respect

 

We aim to make all those connected with the school aware of our opposition to bullying and we make clear each person’s responsibilities with regard to the eradication of bullying in our school.

 

At Morpeth All Saints CE Aided First School we believe through raising awareness of bullying we can:-

 

  • Help everyone understand what bullying is

  • Talk openly about bullying and when they are subjected to it

  • Provide children with the strategies to deal with bullying

  • Model how to treat others

 

This will enable all our children to feel safe Learning with Love and Laughter.

What is bullying?

If somebody physically hurts you, or verbally abuses you, that’s bullying.  Specific types of bullying include:

  • Homophobic bullying based on your sexual orientation
  • Racist bullying because of your skin colour
  • Religious bullying because of your beliefs or faith.
  • Sizeist bullying referring to your body size
  • Sexist bullying focusing on you being of the opposite sex
  • Cyberbullying targeting you online, often anonymously
  • Bullying because you are different

Bullying can be a one-off or it can go on for a long time and bullying can happen to anyone!
