Anti-Bullying Week 2018 – choose respect over bullying
5th November 2018
Every year, charities, schools, individuals and companies across the UK support Anti-Bullying Week 2018, held from the 12th – 16th November. This year’s theme is focused around “Choose Respect” over bullying, where students should opt to respect each other at school rather than embracing a bullying behaviour. A new addition this year is Anti-Cyberbullying Day on Thursday 15th November; this day will highlight the issues of cyberbullying online alongside the bullying offline.
