Anti-Bullying Week

We are taking part in Anti-Bullying week this term. Anti-bullying week helps Chesterton to shine a spotlight on bullying and encourages everyone to take action against bullying throughout the year.

The theme this year is ‘Power for Good’. It is organised by the Anti-Bullying alliance and they have set out the following key aims:
• To support children and young people to use their Power for Good – by understanding the ways in which they are powerful and encouraging individual and collective action to stop bullying and create the best world possible.
• To help parents and carers to use their Power for Good – through supporting children with issues relating to bullying and working together with schools to stop bullying.
• To encourage all teachers, school support staff and youth workers to use their Power for Good – by valuing the difference they can make in a child’s life, and taking individual and collective action to prevent bullying and create safe environments where children can thrive

All week children will be taking part in special assemblies and having a focus on the theme during lesson. If you would like more information, please follow this link where you will find tips for parents and carers - http://anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/
