Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and takes place from 14th to 18th November 2022 and it has the theme ‘Reach Out’.
The week will begin with Odd Socks Day, which is a firm favourite with our children. This year, the children in our school will be allowed to wear their own socks or tights for the entire week.
They can be odd socks, strange socks, or just socks you wouldn’t normally be able to wear to school. Mr Peluso and the Anti-Bullying Team sported their own odd socks during Collective Worship yesterday. We wonder if you can ‘out socks them’ next week.
Kind words can make all the difference to a situation. We all know that as adults being kind is sometimes a big choice! We are keen to make sure that this skill is supported as they grow up. You may be interested to know that we have a saying here, each class should know it off by heart. Do ask your child to see if they do!
You can start them off by asking, ‘what does your teacher always say to your class about how you should talk to each other’? It may help the children if you start them off by holding up three fingers and starting them off by saying ‘use kind’ and then see what they say.
