Schools across the county are being urged to support this year’s national Anti-Bullying Week which takes place this month.
Organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) in England Anti-Bullying Week runs from November 16-20 and aims to raise awareness of bullying and to offer ways in which schools, organisations and individuals can work together to prevent it.
During the week, the ABA is calling on the school community to take action to stop the bullying of all children and young people and to make a noise about bullying.
In line with this mission, the charity Kidscape has put together a comprehensive pack to help schools get involved in the week.
This pack includes assembly presentations for key stage two and three classes, which introduce the theme of Anti-Bullying Week and give students an all-round understanding of bullying.
There are also Powerpoint lesson plans that raise awareness of Anti-Bullying Week and what students can do if they or someone they know is being bullied.
The pack also contains a number of fund-raising ideas that will help schools spread awareness throughout the week.
The packs are available to download now from Kidscape at www.kidscape.org.uk/get-involved/school-fundraising/anti-bullying-week
