Anti-Bullying Week 2017

November 13th - 17th is National Anti-Bullying Week and we will be marking the week in a range of different ways in school. The week is co-ordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and aims to raise awareness and educate children and families about bullying, its effects and how we can stand against it. Their slogan this year is "All Different, All Equal".

 

The children will take part in different activities throughout the week, in particular watching and discussing a series of videos that cover a range of themes. These videos are shown below so that you can view them too and talk to your child at home about what they have seen.

 

Our definition of bullying comes from the Anti-Bullying Alliance and 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 through cyberspace."

ABA defines bullying as 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 through cyberspace.

What do we mean by an imbalance of power in bullying?

The Anti-Bullying Alliance defines bullying as ... the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can happen face to face or through cyberspace. This short clip shows Lauren Seager-Smith - National Coordinator at the Anti-Bullying Alliance - describing what we mean by 'an imbalance of power'.
