Anti-Bullying Week is a national campaign that runs every year towards the end of November. It offers us all an opportunity to look at how we help tackle bullying and what we can do to raise awareness further with children, young people, staff and parents/carers.

Some child settings run poster competitions, buy in theatre productions, run specific workshops, theme assemblies, make worry boxes and make united stands against bullying.

You can be as creative as you like as long as the message of saying no to bullying comes through. It can also be a good time to invite parents and carers in to see the anti-bullying work you are doing. Many child settings also see it as a good time to focus energies on reviewing anti-bullying policies and different initiatives (e.g., peer support).
