Celebrating our differences for Anti-Bullying Week

Anti Bullying Week 2019

Last week’s Anti-Bullying assembly was an important reminder of the significant impact that bullying has on a child’s life and our collective responsibility to make it stop.

To help raise awareness of this and achieve their vision of creating safer environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn, every November the Anti-Bullying Alliance organise Anti-Bullying Week. This is an opportunity for schools and communities across England to shine a light on these aims, empowering students to help achieve them.

At Bridgewater School we have a zero tolerance policy on bullying and throughout their time at school, our students are taught to respect one another and to develop a constructive and cooperative approach to the needs of others in the community.

Here, we are interested in what makes us all different, not just what makes us the same. Therefore we ask all pupils throughout the school to join us for Odd Socks Day on Friday 22nd November and celebrate what makes us all unique.

“Small change. Big difference.

Whether it is verbal, physical, online or in-person, bullying has a significant impact on a child’s life well in to adulthood. By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. In starts with work together.

Change starts here.

Change starts now.

Change starts with us.” Anti-Bullying Alliance, 2019

We believe that indivduals count. So we are interested in what makes us all different. Not just what makes us the same.
