If you weren’t already aware, we’re currently halfway through Anti-Bullying Week in the UK, an event setup to help communities to better understand bullying and online trolling. Our school community is a friendly and kind one, and we thought we’d push this even further by letting you know about The Anti-Bullying Alliance’s ‘one kind word’ campaign, which encourages school pupils to spend the week making a conscious effort to give some extra compliments and check in with their peers. It’s so easy to stop to ask someone how they’re doing, but we often don’t do this enough when we’re busy. So, for the rest of the week, why not spend some time letting people know you’re there for them, or even just sharing a few nice words?
If you’re ever worried about bullying at school, please do report it to a teacher or speak to an adult you trust. There are resources about bullying on The Anti-Bullying Alliance website here, on the BBC website here, and on the NSCPP Learning website here.
