Anti-Bullying Week 2018

The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2018 was to choose respect over bullying.

Following a consultation with over 800 children, teachers and members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, it emerged that a top priority was showing that bullying is a behaviour choice, and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school, in their homes and communities, and online.

The aims of the week were to support schools and other settings to help children and young people, school staff, parents and other professionals who work with children to understand:

  • The definition of respect

  • That bullying is a behaviour choice

  • That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other

  • That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online

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."

Anti-Bullying Alliance definition of bullying

Here you will find the Ant-Bullying Alliance definition. 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'.
