As a member of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, we are proud to support Anti-Bullying Week (15th – 19th November) this year to focus on the important things we all can do with one kind word.

The Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) coordinates Anti-Bullying Week, and this year’s theme is One Kind Word.

“Kindness is more important today than it has ever been,” the ABA says. “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 year’s theme aims to encourage hope, positivity and kindness. Fight against hate and hurtful behaviour! From simply saying ‘hello’ more often to apologising when we do something wrong, one kind word can make a difference.

From 15 to 19 November, take a stand against bullying in all its many forms.

Learn about bullying

Not all bullying is obvious. Cyberbullying especially can be very hard to see.

Bullying can come in many forms such as cyberbullying, trolling and online hate. It can be disguised to not be as obvious, so it’s important to know the signs, where to go if your child is being bullied or is the perpetrator and to have regular conversations with them about what is and is not acceptable behaviour.

Whether you’re a teacher, parent or carer, there are great ways you can get involved and show your support. Take a look below:
