Anti Bullying Week


‘Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and takes place this year from Monday 14th – Friday 18th November 2022 and is supported by SafeToNet.


Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying throughout the year. The theme this year will be announced shortly.


The theme for 2021 was ‘One Kind Word’ and had the following call to action:


Ask if someone’s OK. Say you’re sorry. Just say hey.

In a world that can sometimes feel like it’s filled with negativity, one kind word can provide a moment of hope. It can be a turning point. It can change someone’s perspective. It can change their day. It can change the course of a conversation and break the cycle of bullying.

Best of all, one kind word leads to another. Kindness fuels kindness. So from the playground to Parliament, and from our phones to our homes, together, our actions can fire a chain reaction that powers positivity. It starts with one kind word. It starts today.

As part of our on-going work in developing the children’s Personal, social, health and economic education, we look at building their relationships with each other in their class, key stage, the whole school and other people they are connected with. A focus on bullying forms a regular part of this teaching, culminating in Anti-Bullying Week which usually occurs during November of each year.


We teach the children to think about and use the word STOP to help them to recognise what bullying is and also what to do if bullying is going on. So,



When children use the word Bullying to describe a situation, we get them to think about STOP; to apply it to what they are describing and think whether what has gone on is in fact bullying.


If it is not, then we help them to firstly see the situation for what it is and then to resolve the situation.


If it is bullying, we will follow it up appropriately. Each situation is different and may call for a slightly different response. At Gilmorton Chandler we take incidents of bullying very seriously and will work with all of those involved to come up with a solution.

In recognition of our work in this area, we have been awarded the ‘Beyond Bullying Silver Award‘ by the Leicestershire Anti-Bullying Team. The Certificate can be seen in the entrance space at the school.
