Anti Bullying Week 2020 – What You Need to Know

by | Oct 27, 2020

Last year 78% of schools took part in Anti Bullying Week and students and teachers agreed that it had a positive impact in raising awareness about bullying. This year the theme is United Against Bullying, the theme encourages us to think about how we all have a part to place to stop bullying from happening.

So here is the key dates and info that you need to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week 2020 at your school:

Anti-Bullying Week 2020 – United Against Bullying is taking place on Monday 16th – Friday 20th November 2020.

Odd Socks Day is taking place on Monday 16th November 2020.

57% of schools took part in Odd Socks day last year, and this year it’s set to be more popular than ever before. So make sure you get involved at your school. There’s an activity pack, a competition and much more, access everything you need here.

Andy Day and the Odd Socks have even created a brand new track in support of this event:

Thursday 19th November 2020 – #agoodfriendis

Then on Thursday 19th, it’s time to shout about good quality friendships. So on Thursday 19th November, why not talk with your student about their ideas on what it means to be a good friend. Then you can share some of your schools ideas, using the hashtag #agoodfriendis.

Get involved on Social Media

Whatever you are doing for Anti-Bullying Week 2020, make sure you tweet about and post to social media. This is a great way of increasing awareness of the event, and encouraging other schools to get involved.

Whenever you post, make sure you use the hashtags:

#antibullyingweek

#unitedagainstbullying

The Anti-Bullying Alliance have created images and resources that you can use on social media. And make sure you check out the Social Media Toolkit here.
