It is so important to Make a Noise about bullying behaviour. Let’s encourage young people to consider what bullying behaviour means to them, how banter can turn into something more hurtful, and what we can do to stop bullying behaviour from happening.
Encouraging kind and respectful behaviour in schools can make a big difference and is so much more than just a ‘nice to have’. Research shows that it helps reduce bullying and disruptive behaviour and helps to increase social and emotional well-being.
The activities we have developed can help children and young people understand the importance of Making a Noise and talking about bullying behaviour. Too often, we are silent when we see bullying take place, silent about the hurt it causes, and silent when we hear bullying dismissed as ‘just banter’. It doesn’t have to be this way. Setting aside time to encourage them to Make a Noise can raise awareness, cultivate empathy and understanding between individuals, leading to increased friendships and positive relationships.
In the packs, you will find:
We also have a great range of posters for you to display around your school.
All the resources in the pack have been designed to help schools recognise and celebrate Anti-Bullying Week 2023 and to highlight the theme Make a Noise.
