Coventry CIty are supporting Anti-Bullying Week.
Every November schools throughout the United Kingdom take part in Anti-Bullying Week.
This is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on bullying and consider the steps we can take together to stop it.
Anti-Bullying Week 2021 is taking place from Monday 15th to Friday 19th November this year and it has the theme ‘One Kind Word’.
The week will begin with Odd Socks Day which is supported by CBBC and CBeebies star Andy Day and his band Andy and the Odd Socks.
Kindness is more important today than it has ever been. The isolation of the last year has underlined how little acts of consideration can break down barriers and brighten the lives of the people around us. This is one of the reasons, that ‘One Kind Word’ has been chosen as the theme of Anti-Bullying Week this year.
Following the success of the campaign in 2020 – when a jaw-dropping 80% of schools marked the week reaching over 7.5 million children and young people - the Anti-Bullying Alliance (which coordinates the campaign each year in England and Wales) asked over 400 young people, teachers, and parents, what they wanted from this year’s Anti-Bullying Week. Again and again, the young and not-so-young said that they wanted anti-bullying work to be about hope and the positive and kind things we can do to halt hurtful behaviour in its tracks.
