We're very pleased to say that we've worked with Kidscape and SafeToNet to develop a tool for parent and carers to help them support their children and bring Anti-Bullying Week to life.
As parents and carers, we all want our children to be happy and safe and it is natural to worry about bullying - particularly if we have experienced bullying ourselves, or we think our child may be more vulnerable to bullying. The good news is you are not alone! The Anti-Bullying Alliance and its members are here to work with children, families and schools to help keep children safe.
Every November schools throughout the United Kingdom take part in Anti-Bullying Week. This is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on bullying and consider the steps we can take together to stop it. Anti-Bullying Week 2021 is taking place from Monday 15th to Friday 19th November this year and it has the theme ‘One Kind Word’.
As a parent or carer, you are a vital piece of the puzzle in tackling bullying. You have a unique role to play in guiding and supporting your child through their school years and there are lots of positive steps you can take to help keep your child safe from bullying and harm. One of the steps is knowing when to ask for support. At the end of this resource we have included details of organisations like Kidscape who can help.
This tool was written by Kidscape and designed to give you information about bullying, tips about what to do if you’re worried about bullying, the tools to help you talk to your children about bullying.
Please share your activity with us on social media. Use the hashtag #AntiBullyingWeek. We love to see what you’re doing.
