Promoting and Celebrating Anti-Bullying Week 15th - 19th November 2021
This year Anti-Bullying Week is on Monday 15th – Friday 19th November and the theme is ‘One Kind Word’. In a world that can sometimes feel like it’s filled with negativity, one kind word can provide a moment of hope. It can be a turning point. It can change someone’s perspective and can change their day. Best of all, one kind word leads to another. We will use this week in school as a platform to encourage our pupils and whole school staff to spread a little kindness through a word or a deed!
To mark the start of Anti-Bullying Week we will hold an Odd Sock Day on 15/11/21. Pupils and staff are encouraged to come to school wearing odd socks to celebrate what makes us all unique. On Monday 15th November all teachers to take some time to set up a kindness initiative which will run throughout the week. Pupils will choose a random name from your popsicles to be their ‘kindness’ buddy for the week. They can complete some activities from their kindness card for that person or make up their own kindness act.
Our whole school staff will get involved as well and spread a little kindness to each other. All teaching staff and non-teaching staff will be randomly matched with one other and just like the pupils they will be encouraged to either do a random act of kindness (cover a duty, leave a note on a table, a quick chat or a passing compliment) or purchase perhaps a small wellbeing gift. Lots of fun activities will be enjoyed by pupils and staff through the week. Let’s have some fun and laughter in our classrooms and corridors!
