Anti-Bullying Week 2022 is coordinated in England and Wales by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. It will take place from 14th to 18th November 2022 and has the theme Reach Out.
The week will kick off with Odd Socks Day on Monday 14th November, where adults and children wear odd socks to celebrate what makes us all unique. As parents and carers we all want our children to be happy and safe, and it is natural to worry about bullying – particularly if we have experienced bullying ourselves or think our child may be more vulnerable to bullying. The good news is that you are not alone! The Anti-Bullying Alliance prepared a lot of resources for children, families, and schools to help keep children safe.
Every November we join schools throughout the United Kingdom which take part in Anti-Bullying Week. This is an opportunity to spotlight bullying and consider the steps we can take together to stop it. As a parent or carer, you are a vital piece of the puzzle in tackling bullying. You have a unique role to play in guiding and supporting your child through their school years and there are many positive steps you can take to help keep your child safe from bullying and harm.
One of the steps is knowing when to ask for support.
