The theme for Anti-Bullying Week this year was ‘United Against Bullying’. Anti-Bullying Week took place from Monday 16th to Friday 20th November. The children have been involved in different activities including assemblies. In Lower School the children focused on the difference between bullying and falling out with their friends. They were shared the story ‘Howard Wigglebottom Learns About Bullies’. There are lots of great stories about Howard Wigglebottom shared by the We Do Listen Foundation. Upper School focused on the Anti Bullying Alliance theme united against bullying, where it is important that everyone across the world act against bullies. There is a positive power when we all come together to reduce bullying – the collective power. We all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference. The teachers have been completing training set by the Anti Bullying Alliance and there are some great resources for Parents on the website, including ‘Restorative Thinking and Positive Relationships: preventing and managing conflict’
At Lyndhurst School we continue to use the acronym – STOP – Several Times on Purpose when thinking about bullying.
