As in previous years, Bullybusters are playing a key part in this year’s National Anti-Bullying Week (17-21 November) in raising awareness of issues related to bullying.
Every November through Anti-Bullying Week, the Anti-Bullying Alliance and its 60-member organisations shine a light on bullying, sending a clear and positive message that bullying is not acceptable in our schools and communities.
This year’s Anti-Bullying Week sets out to raise awareness and challenge unacceptable behaviour through a campaign based on the slogan ‘Being different, belonging together’ .
Local Solutions' Bullybusters service, which is backed by the Liverpool Echo, is out and about all this week enforcing the same message as the Anti-Bullying Alliance. Events include:
- A meeting at the Liverpool Town Hall, which will see the launch of ‘Denial’ – a DVD about homophobic bullying made by the Liverpool Culture Company.
- Working with the Wirral Anti-Bullying Forum visiting primary and secondary schools to discuss cyberbullying.
- Collaborating with Kirkby C of E Primary School, taking a ‘Whole School’ approach to tackle bullying issues, which will engage all staff from caretakers to head teachers in order to ensure each child is consistently given the same message.
