Anti-Bullying Week 2020 is taking place from Monday 16th – Friday 20th November, and it’s now celebrated by more primary schools across the UK than ever before. Last year almost 80% of schools took part in Anti-Bullying Week.
This year the theme is United Against Bullying, it encourages us to think about how we all have a part to play to stop bullying.

Press & Play Anti-Bullying Lesson: Stronger Together
We’ve created a new Press & Play Anti-Bullying Lesson Stronger Together. This is a video led lesson that explores the topic of banter and how a joke can go too far and become bullying.
As students watch the lesson they meet a character called Sophie. Sophie explains a shared jokes that she has with her friends and what she thinks the word banter means. As Sophie’s story progresses hear how joke with her friends goes too far and becomes bullying.
Towards the end of the lesson students will identify specific actions that they can take to become united against bullying at their school.
Students will learn:
- The definition of bullying, with reference to a Power Imbalance.
- What the word banter means, and the difference between banter and bullying
- The difference between a teasing joke and bullying.
- What they can do to stop bullying from happening at their school.
