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. ‘We’re all a piece in the puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.’ 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.
What is Odd Socks day?
Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!
We talked about the fact that in order for a person’s actions to be called bullying they have to be repeated. Falling out with a friend one day and making up the next is not bullying. Being unkind to someone day after day is bullying.
People who are being bullied often feel very alone. It can feel as if no-one cares or even that other people are on the bully’s side if they don’t speak up. If you think your friend is being bullied, say something! Speak to your friend, to a teacher/teaching assistant/Playworker.
We want all the children at Grange Primary School to feel safe at school.
