Anti-Bullying Week

Next week is Anti-Bullying Week.

The theme of Anti-Bullying Week next week is “United Against Bullying”.


On Monday 16th November, it is Odd Socks Day. This is where we encourage the children to come to school wearing odd socks to show that they are united in standing up against bullying.


During the week, the children will do lots of learning with their class about preventing bullying. One of the things taught to the children is STOP.

They can remember what bullying is using STOP: Several Times OPurpose.

They can remember what to do if they are worried about bullying using STOP: Start Telling Other People.


At Irk Valley, we believe that every child should be happy and safe at school, able to learn and thrive, free from bullying. The work we do at school during Anti-Bullying Week is very important, but it is just one part of the work we do all year round to support our children.
