Anti-bullying Week 2021
By Mr Newton, Anti-Bullying Lead
This week we’ve had a great time celebrating Anti-Bullying week. We launched our week with Odd Socks Day, and it was brilliant to see so many children wearing odd socks as we celebrated diversity and individuality. Throughout the rest of the week, we have been using assemblies and lesson time to focus on the theme of this year's Anti-Bullying Week; ‘One Kind Word.’
The children have been thinking about ways they can share kindness through their words and actions, for example saying something kind to someone; showing they’re interested in someone by asking them questions or doing something practical to show kindness like baking a cake for them. We’ve also thought about the ripple effect that these acts of kindness can have. It has been lovely to have children come up to me throughout the week and share ways they’ve been kind to others (and in some cases how they’ve been kind to their pets!).
