Anti-Bullying Week 2015 theme announced!

Posted on 22 May 2015

The Anti-Bullying Alliance have announced that the theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2015 will be, ‘Make a Noise about bullying’. 

Taking place from the 16th – 20th November 2015, Anti-Bullying Week is a chance for schools and the wider community to take action against bullying. 

Highlighting the impact of bullying on children and young people in schools, communities and in cyberspace, the Anti-Bullying Alliance have outlined clear aims for the week:

  • To empower children and young people to make a noise about bullying – whether it is happening to them or to someone else, face to face or online;
  • To help parents and carers have conversations with their children about bullying – both as a way of preventing bullying, and to help children who are worried about bullying;
  • To encourage ‘talking schools’ where all children and young people are given a safe space to discuss bullying and other issues that affect their lives, and are supported to report all forms of bullying;
  • To equip teachers to respond effectively when children tell them they’re being bullied; and
  • To raise awareness of the impact of bullying on children’s lives if they don’t tell anyone it’s happening – or if they are not given appropriate support – with a focus on the impact on mental health.
