Join Tabz (David Taberner) and Hettie as they bring us a KS1/KS2 special workshop for Anti-Bullying Week 2020, in addition to their Safe Space Collective Worship Assemblies.
This workshop is our response to the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s annual theme of being “United Against Bullying” during national Anti-Bullying Week, beginning 16th November.
Anti-Bullying Week is largely led nationally by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, of which we don’t claim any official affiliation – but we really support their efforts and what to help our local schools aspire to the Anti-Bullying Week 2020 manifesto for change:
“This year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge. Anti-Bullying Week is no different. Bullying has a long lasting effect on those who experience and witness it. But by channelling our collective power, through shared efforts and shared ambitions, we can reduce bullying together. From parents and carers, to teachers and politicians, to children and young people, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference. We’re all a piece in the puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.”
Safe Space is a project of Southport & Area Schools Worker Trust, creating a safe space to explore the big issues of life and faith in local schools, which puts anti-bullying firmly on our agenda with the following learning objectives:
- To better understand what bullying is with the intent of helping pupils look out for it.
- To implement widened understanding through how we look to each play our part in stamping out bullying.
- To see an impact in each child making a personalised individual effort to stand up against bullying.
Let us know who’s watching…
It is not uncommon for visually impaired children to be the target of bullying and harassment. To help students and families navigate and hopefully prevent this, NVISION recently published a free educational guide on childhood bullying for those who wear glasses. Please take a look:
