Anti-Bullying Week 2023
13th -17th November
What is Anti-Bullying Week?
Anti-Bullying Week is an annual UK event which aims to raise awareness of bullying and to highlight ways of preventing and responding to it. In England, Anti-Bullying Week is organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, which is a network of more than 100 member organisations (including us!) all united against bullying.
What’s Happening This Year?
The theme of Anti-Bullying Week will be announced in mid-2023.
In previous years, 80% of schools marked Anti-Bullying Week in their calendars, meaning it reached over 7.5 million young people! This year, let’s make it even bigger!
Our World Kindness Day Assembly!
This year, we’re kicking off Anti-Bullying Week with our virtual World Kindness Day Assembly! This will take place on Monday 13th November 2023 and is free for all primary schools. Our assemblies were fully booked last year, so make sure you register you interest here so you can be the first to find out when booking opens. We’ll also be releasing a brand new World Kindness Day Resource Pack for schools.
We’re super excited for this year’s assembly. Last year, more than 45,000 children from 200 schools took part in our assemblies, and we’re planning for 2023 to be even bigger!
How Can Your School Get Involved?
To get your school involved in Anti-Bullying Week, you can download a range of free resources from the ABA website, including lesson plans and themed assemblies for different key stages. At The School of Kindness we also have a range of free teaching resources related to Anti-Bullying Week that you can download here.
If you’d like to spread even more kindness at your school, you can request a Kindness Workshop from us here at The School of Kindness, which is totally free and a great way to inspire children to respect others and spread kindness.
