Anti-Bullying Week 2021


Anti- Bullying Week 2021

Anti- Bullying Week took place from 15 to 19 November 2021 and had the theme One Kind Word. The week also had an Odd Socks focus which was supported by CBBC and CBeebies star Andy Day and his band Andy and the Odd Socks.

Kindness is more important today than it has ever been. The isolation of the last year has underlined how little acts of consideration can break down barriers and brighten the lives of the people around us. This is one of the reasons that ‘One Kind Word’ was chosen.

In our school we brought in our odd socks from home and created whole class art work, we worked collaboratively in our classes to come up with our design. The Anti-Bullying Team chose the kind words for the classes to represent. We then visited Shiney Row’s Art Exhibition in the hall to increase our kind vocabulary.

Each class then completed an activity to support and highlight the importance of Anti- Bullying.

Shiney Row’s call to action: 

  • Ask if someone’s OK. Say you’re sorry. Just say hey.
  • 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. It can change their day. It can change the course of a conversation and break the cycle of bullying.
  • Best of all, one kind word leads to another. Kindness fuels kindness. So from the playground to Parliament, and from our phones to our homes, together, our actions can fire a chain reaction that powers positivity.
  • It starts with one kind word. It starts today.
