12 November 2018 to 16 November 2018

The Anti-Bullying Alliance are the official organisers of Anti-Bullying Week.

The theme for this year's Anti-Bullying Week is to choose respect over bullying.

There will be an Odd Socks Day for Anti-Bullying Week again on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week (12 November 2018).

The aims of this week are to support schools and other settings to help children and young people, school staff, parents and other professionals who work with children to understand:

  • The definition of respect
  • That bullying is a behaviour choice
  • That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
  • That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online
