Anti-Bullying Week

Today, we marked the start of Anti-Bullying week by wearing odd socks to school. 

Odd Sock day is a day when schools, workplaces, and individuals join together to show that it’s okay to be different and to stand up against bullying and discrimination.  Odd Sockday is designed to be fun!  It is an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique.

In class, the children took part in activities to help us to understand what bullying is and why it is wrong.  This year’s theme is, ‘Make a Noise about Bullying’.  It encourages everyone to speak out about bullying and get help for themselves or others.

As a parent or carer, you are a vital piece of the puzzle in tackling bullying.  You have a unique role to play in guiding and supporting your child through their school years and there are many positive steps you can take to help keep your child safe from bullying and harm.  One of the steps is knowing when to ask for support. At Harlow Green, bullying is not tolerated and you should always speak to a member of staff for advice if you have concerns about your child.

Below you will find a parent pack from the Anti-Bullying Alliance.  This tool was written with input from Kidscape and is designed to give you information about bullying, tips about what to do if you’re worried about bullying, the tools to help you talk to your children about bullying.
