Anti-Bullying Week 2021 is happening from Monday 15th – Friday 19th November and has the theme ‘One Kind Word’. It is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, which is based at the National Children’s Bureau.
In a world that can sometimes feel like it’s filled with negativity, one kind word can provide a moment of hope. It can be a turning point. It can change someone’s perspective. It can change their day. It can change the course of a conversation and break the cycle of bullying.
Best of all, one kind word leads to another. Kindness fuels kindness. So from the playground to Parliament, and from our phones to our homes, together, our actions can fire a chain reaction that powers positivity.
It starts with one kind word.
At PCJ, we will be marking the week through a special assembly and PSHE sessions focused on this year's theme of 'One Kind Word'. We will also be celebrating our uniqueness by holding an 'Odd Socks Day' on Tuesday 16th November and would love the children to come to school on this day wearing odd socks along with their normal school uniform. The staff will be wearing theirs too!
