Anti-Bullying Week - Make A Noise

In the week beginning 16th - 20th of November it is anti-bullying week.  This year we will be following the national theme of 'Make A Noise' - equipping children with the skills and confidence to talk about bullying whether it is happening to them or to someone they know. The week will begin with a whole school assembly led by Mrs Godfrey and the theme revisited throughout the week in class, on the playground and at White Hall.

The key aims of the week are...

  • To empower children and young people to make a noise about bullying – whether it is happening to them or to someone else, face to face or online;
  • To help parents and carers have conversations with their children about bullying – both as a way of preventing bullying, and to help children who are worried about bullying;
  • To encourage ‘talking schools’ where all children and young people are given a safe space to discuss bullying and other issues that affect their lives, and are supported to report all forms of bullying;
  • To equip teachers to respond effectively when children tell them they’re being bullied; and
  • To raise awareness of the impact of bullying on children’s lives if they don’t tell anyone it’s happening – or if they are not given appropriate support – with a focus on the impact on mental health.
