  • Anti-Bullying Week!

    Published 16/11/22

    Thank you to everyone for the fantastic array of odd socks that were worn in school on Monday 14th November. It was a great way to launch anti-bullying week. This year the theme was 'Reach out'. The children have been busy exploring this theme in school this week as well as learning the official Andy and the Odd Socks song 'Calling Out'. The song can be accessed here  

    It is important to remember that:

    • Bullying affects millions of lived and can leave us feeling hopeless. But it doesn't have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it. And it starts by reaching out. 
    • Whether it's in school, at home, in the community or online, let's reach out and show each other the support we need. Reach out to someone you trust if you need to talk. Reach out to someone you know is being bullied. Reach out and consider a new approach.
    • It doesn't stop with young people. From teachers to parents and influencers to politicians, we all have a responsibility to help each other reach out. Together, let's be the change we want to see. Reflect on our own behaviour, set positive examples and create kinder communities. 
    • It takes courage, but it can change lives. So, let's come together and reach out to stop bullying.
