Anti-Bullying Week is an annual event, which aims to raise awareness of bullying amongst children and young people. The theme chosen for this year is ‘One Kind Word’, a message to encourage all to be kinder to one another, to remember to think before you speak and the importance of being kind. The event takes place from 15 to 19 November 2021.
Kindness is especially important right now; we must make sure to look out for one another and ensure each time we meet someone we speak to them with kindness and care. ‘One Kind Word’ is encouraging the nation to take part in being conscious of the impact our words can have on others. Make sure the words you use have a positive impact on someone’s day.
We’ve compiled some things you can do to promote kindness, which will brighten someone’s day!
- Compliment a friend
- Tell a joke
- Do a chore for someone without them asking or knowing
- Greet everyone you see
- Compliment a stranger
- Leave a nice note in a book at the library
- Hold the door open for someone at school
- Compliment your teacher
- Talk to someone new at school
- Play inclusive games at lunchtime, which the whole class can get involved in!
These are just some of the many things we can do every day to make sure we do our bit to be kind to one another. If you’d like more information about Anti-Bullying Week, check out the Anti-bullying Alliance website.
At Prim-Ed we understand the impact bullying can have on children and adults alike. Our anti-bullying resources piece together the necessary information to make pupils aware of the impact that bullying has on other children and why we should prevent bullying, starting in the classroom. The growth of the Internet and social media platforms has led to an increase in cyberbullying.
Bullying in a Cyber World aims to equip pupils with the skills to grow into socially competent, empathic adults who can both cope with bullying and ensure they do not become bullies. It is so important that pupils learn from a young age the effects of bullying and how to ensure they do not contribute to the problem. Our anti-bullying resources create awareness around bullying, educating children, and minimising bullying behaviours throughout schools and at home.
