Anti-Bullying Week 2018
The theme for this year's Anti-Bullying Week is to choose respect over bullying and wear odd socks to represent being an individual and to celebrate being you.
At St Luke's we wore odd socks and some children chose to wear odd shoes and we completed an array of activities throughout the week to remind us to always "Choose Respect"
Following a consultation with over 800 children, teachers and members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, it emerged that a top priority was showing that bullying is a behaviour choice, and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school, in their homes and communities, and online.
The definition of respect
That bullying is a behaviour choice
That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online.
