Anti-Bullying Week
Back to article list

3rd December 2018


Anti-bullying-week-2018-(2)For Anti-Bullying Week this year, the Anti-Bullying team did an assembly for all year groups to promote this year’s theme: Choose Respect. We believe the messages were extremely important so we’ve made a blog post to help you remember them!

The definition of respect: being considerate of other peoples feelings, beliefs, abilities, rights, culture etc.

Anti-bullying-week-2018-(6)And why is it important to show respect? It’s essentially treating others as you would want to be treated, and accepting that others are different and do things differently to how you might. Choosing respect enables use to sustain relationships and can make someone feel valued.

The ambassadors also raised awareness of the difference between banter and bullying. Most importantly, banter is only banter when you both find it funny! If you have offended someone or hurt their feelings, apologise as you have crossed the line.

Anti-bullying-week-2018-(5)‘Treat people the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. Respect is earned, not given.’

And finally, it’s important to respect yourself.

  • Believe that you are worthy.
  • Acknowledge your own achievements.
  • Don’t put yourself down about your appearance.
  • Don’t believe everything that other people say about you.
  • Looking after your health

We hope these messages will be remembered in the future and the ambassadors at school aim to continue raising awareness of these issues.
