Anti-Bullying Week 2019: Change Starts With Us
Anti-Bullying Week happens in schools across England each November. The 2019 theme was Change Starts With Us and it took place from Monday 11th November - Friday 15th November 2019.
The theme aims were as follows:
The goal was to inform our children to know that it takes a collective responsibility to stop bullying. We wanted to create empowering, positive messages addressing the fact that when it comes to bullying CHANGE STARTS WITH US!
We also raised money by wearing our odd socks on Thursday 14th November 2019.
Anti-Bullying Week 2019: What is cyber bullying?
In addition to this year's theme, we wanted to do some further work on cyber bullying to empower children to make the right choices about what they say online and understand how we can get help.
Some of the Digital Leaders went to Whitestone Infant School to do a cyber bullying assembly. We wanted explain in very simple terms what cyber bullying looks like and how it can affect our friends. We also learned about C.A.T who taught the children we need to Check, Ask, Tell.
In class, we looked at how cyberbullying behaviours and other bullying behaviours are similar and different. This created some very interesting class discussions.
