Anti-Bullying Week happens in schools across England each November. This year’s Anti-Bullying Week has the theme “Change Starts With Us” and runs from Monday 11th November – Friday 15th November 2019.
Last week millions of children went #Back2School, sadly many of them will experience some kind of bullying.
Everybody has the right to go about their daily lives without the fear of being threatened, assaulted or harassed. No one should underestimate the impact that bullying can have on a person’s life. Anyone who is being bullied should speak to someone.
