Anti-Bullying Week which is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, is from Monday 16 to Friday 20 November and the campaign theme is United Against Bullying. This year we’ll support secondary teachers in talking with young people (aged 11-16) about bullying and diversity. Letting them know they aren’t alone is so important and helping them tell their story can be a great way to share their feelings.

What's on offer

With an ever-increasing need for technology both inside and outside of the classroom talking about the challenges young people face whilst online is more important than ever. We’re inviting your students to get creative. We’d love them to create a short news report and in doing so they will:

  • Build creativity, communication and collaboration skills essential for the future workplace
  • Develop media literacy skills with a focus on creating media responsibly
  • Encourage students to think about how we can unite and address bullying both on and off line.

Get Talking:

We want to support the start of the conversation on bullying and diversity and help teachers feel more confident when discussing these tough topics in the classroom.

So the challenge is ‘create a 120 second news report raising awareness of online bullying and detail why we should all be #UnitedAgainstBullying’.

Be sure to share the news reports with us at Sky so we can amplify your stories through our channels.

For Parents:

We’ve teamed up with Internet matters to help you start the conversation around bullying. We have collated a set of resources that will help you support your children this Anti-Bullying Week. 

We want you to feel confident in starting the conversation on bullying and diversity so that together we can be #UnitedAgainstBullying.
