Odd Socks for Anti-Bullying Week

This week is Anti-Bullying Week, an annual UK event that aims to raise awareness of bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere, and to highlight ways of preventing and responding to it.

On Monday, Mr. Krisson held a whole school assembly that introduced anti-bullying week by exploring the theme of Reaching Out; both to others & for others. Highlighting that in order to prevent and stop bullying we must challenge it to change it, for example by checking in on our classmates or speaking to a member of staff.

One of the ways we are choosing to mark Anti-bullying week is by joining in on odd socks day – for the rest of the week! Children are encouraged to wear mismatched socks each day at school until Friday to express themselves and celebrate their individuality – what makes us all unique! As much as we are excited to see all of the whacky colours, shapes & patterns, it is not compulsory to don funky socks. Whatever socks your child would like to wear, they are welcome.

If you would like to find out more about anti-bullying week, there are lots of helpful resources on the anti-bullying alliance’s website.

We look forward to seeing all of the crazy combinations,
