18th Nov 2021

World Children’s Day is a day to celebrate the power of children to change the world.

On the 20th November we celebrate World Children’s Day, the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is a global day of action for children by children. 

An integral part of World Children’s Day is children learning about their rights and raising their voices on issues that affect them.

We will be taking part in activities and watching the new ‘ We all have rights’ video which has been launched by UNICEF to help children understand their rights.

As parents and carers, you all want your children to be happy and safe. It is natural to worry about bullying- particularly if you have experienced bullying yourself, or you think that your child might be vulnerable to bullying.

Every November schools throughout the United Kingdom take part in Anti-Bullying Week. This is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on bullying and consider the steps we can take together to stop it.

As a parent/ carer , you are a vital piece of the puzzle in tackling bullying. You have a unique role to play in guiding and supporting your child through their school years and there are lots of positive steps you can take to help keep your child safe from bullying and harm.

The attached pack is designed to give you information about bullying, tips about what to do if you're worried about bullying and tools to help you talk to your children about bullying.

Anti-Bullying Week 2021 is taking place from Monday 15th - Friday 19th November . 

The theme for this year is One Kind Word.  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 . 

The children will be taking part in a series of Anti-Bullying week activities including taking part in Odd Socks Day , watching online assemblies and acting out drama scenarios.
