Anti-bullying week 16th-20th November 2020
Stephen Lawrence Day 21st april 2021 (Year 2 pupils have the opportunity to be elected as anti-bullying ambassadors)
The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2020 is: ‘United Against Bullying’.
This year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge.
Anti-Bullying Week is no different. Bullying has a long lasting effect on those who experience and witness it. But by channelling our collective power, through shared efforts and shared ambitions, we can reduce bullying together. From parents and carers, to teachers and politicians, to children and young people, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference.
We’re all a piece in the puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.
Anti-Bullying Week runs from 16-20 November 2020. ABA (Anti Bullying Alliance) will hold Odd Socks Day for Anti-Bullying Week on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week (16 November 2019). Due to school closure due to a postive case of coronavirus, our Odd Socks Day will be on Monday 23rd November. Anti-bullying lessons will take place online. Magna Carta will take part in this event to raise awareness and to raise funds to buy more anti-bullying books and resources to enrich our PSHE curriculum. We encourage pupils and staff to wear odd socks to school during the campaign to show their support. We ask that anyone who takes part in Odd Socks Day, donates whatever they can afford. In the last two years we raised money for a friendship bench for the playground. We now have enough money for this and it should be installed this year.
