Anti-Bullying Week 2022 – Reach Out

by | May 11, 2022

Anti-Bullying Week 2022 is celebrated throughout November. Last year 80% of schools took part in Anti-Bullying Week, so we’re delighted to hear that Anti-Bullying Alliance have now announced the new theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2022.

So for Anti-Bullying Week 2022 the theme is…

Reach Out

‘This Anti-Bullying Week let’s come together and reach out to stop bullying. Bullying affects millions of young lives. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it. And it starts by reaching out.’

So as November approaches, there is so much to look forward to. A great place to start is to watch the new Anti-Bullying Week 2022 video and why not share it in your school Newsletter?


Get ready for Odd Socks Day 2022

Odd Socks Day will also be taking place on the Monday of Anti-Bullying Week 2022 (Monday 14th November!) Andy Day and the Odd Socks will also be taking part in the event and creating a new song to support this important national event.
