Over 30% of children and young people have experienced bullying in the last year alone. This Anti-Bullying Week 2017, Monday 13th – Friday 17th November, and beyond we are calling on you to celebrate what makes us all different and all equal.
We’ve achieved so much, but there’s a long way to go
Each year Anti-Bullying Week reaches at least 75% of schools – that works out to 6 million pupils in England. So much work is being done by schools across the country to reduce bullying, however we know some groups are still more likely to experience it than others. We want young people to feel free to be themselves without fear of bullying.
In 2016, #AntiBullyingWeek reached a whopping 71 million on Twitter and was supported by 1,000s of organisations and individuals. This year, with the kind support of SafeToNet, we need your help to reach more and encourage people to be #AllDifferentAllEqual.
1. Support the campaign with your own #AntiBullyingWeek selfie.
In Anti-Bullying Week post your own #AllDifferentAllEqual selfie or video. Make sure you’re using the official hashtags #AntiBullyingWeek and #AllDifferentAllEqual too so we can see and share how you're are getting involved!
Why not accompany your content by some words about why you are supporting this year’s event. For example, ‘We are #AllDifferentAllEqual and that is why I’m supporting this year’s #AntiBullyingWeek with @ABAOnline."
You can use this poster to help you.
2. Update your profile picture for Anti-Bullying Week
Update your profile picture on Facebook or Twitter with our Anti-Bullying Week Twibbon to show your support here.
3. Odd Socks Day for Anti-Bullying Week
As part of Anti-Bullying Week, on the first day, (Monday 13th November) we will be asking schools across the country to hold an ‘Odd Socks Day for Anti-Bullying Week’.
Aimed at early years and primary school children, the day encourages young children to wear odd socks for the day, celebrating their uniqueness. Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity for children to express themselves and appreciate individuality. There is no pressure on the children to wear the latest fashion or for parents to buy expensive costumes. All they have to do to take part is wear odd socks to school, it couldn’t be simpler!
Please share your activity with us on social media. Use the hashtag #AntiBullyingWeek and #OddSocks We love to see what you’re doing. Share with us your videos, artwork and messages!
Whatever you choose to do this Anti-Bullying Week, we’re looking forward to seeing it.
