Odd Socks Day School Pack
Below you will find everything you need to take part in Odd Socks Day in your school on Monday 15th November 2021.
Odd Socks Day is an opportunity in your school to have fun, be yourself, and spread awareness of the core values Anti-Bullying Week promotes. We've created a school pack which you can find below along with:
- Book bag flyer
- General flyer
- Odd Socks Day poster
- Kindness pledge sheet handout
- Lyric sheet for Andy and the Odd Socks song 'One Kind Word'
- These resources will be available in the Welsh language here by mid-October
All the ideas in our materials are designed to help children and adults in a school or early years environment to think about how we can spread kindness by celebrating what makes us all unique. This pack contains a 20 – 30 minute lesson plan and lots of activity ideas to help you bring Odd Socks Day to life in your school or setting.
We hold Odd Socks Day in partnership with Andy and the Odd Socks. Andy and the Odd Socks are one of the most popular bands for young children in the UK.

Take a look at Page 6 of the school pack for more details about how you can win a visit from Andy and the Odd Socks by sharing your school's Odd Socks Day photos and videos on social media. There's even a 'Best Pet In Odd Socks' competition taking place in the week.
Andy and the Odd Socks song and video 2021 'One Kind Word' is coming soon
We're delighted to tell you that Andy and the Odd Socks have written another toe-tapping song this year called 'One Kind Word'. It will be launched before Anti-Bullying Week along with a video you can show all your pupils. Check back on this page to find it as we get closer to Anti-Bullying Week.
Odd Socks Day Virtual Assembly
Last year Andy and the Odd Socks were joined by Sir Mo Farah and Annamarie and many other incredible guests for a jam-packed virtual assembly. It's 20 minutes of odd socks fun and important anti-bullying messages. In addition to this year's school pack and the One Kind Word film, you can also use this virtual assembly to help bring Odd Socks Day to life!
