Anti-Bullying Week Poster – What Is Bullying?

When we visit schools with our Anti-Bullying Workshops, an important first step is establishing a shared understanding of what bullying is. Knowing the difference between conflict, an argument and bullying can help young people to understand when bullying is happening.

There is also confusion about the difference between banter and bullying. Having an understanding of a power imbalance can help students to know when something is banter, and when a joke has gone too far and become bullying.

At OpenView Education we are proud to be Associate members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance. The shared definition of bullying we use is…

‘The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or online’.

This definition is based on research carried out over the past 30 years, and has commonalities with definitions used across the world.

We’ve created this new poster for Anti-Bullying Week 2023 to support schools to Make a Noise About Bullying. Why not display this poster in your classroom ahead of Anti-Bullying Week 2023?

And if you’re looking to organise something special for your school this Anti-Bullying Week, why not try a free trial of our Anti-Bullying Video Workshops here.
