14 – 18 November is Anti-Bullying Week 2016 and there are lots of resources being shared with teachers for use during the week.
KidPower – This site shares eight skills to help children confidently. The site says:
“The following eight Kidpower skills have helped to prepare countless people of all ages and abilities to prevent and stop bullying. Whether you are a parent, educators, or other caring adult, when you are coaching someone to practice safety skills, this individual is your student and you are their teacher.” (KidPower Website) The website goes on to list the skills, with descriptions, of how the individual should act.
Ditch the Label – This site, whilst generally aimed at teens and adults, does have resources for teachers to use. There is a form where people can request help, or in fact, offer help. Particularly the request help may be useful though!
Kidscape – Has an anti-bullying week page with ideas such as Friendship Friday. There is a free resource pack with assembly plans for KS2. There is help for schools to update their bullying policy too.
Bullying UK – Provides a set of free resources: “Anti bullying week, which is on the 14th to 18th November 2016, is a great opportunity to reinforce the messages about how your school approaches bullying including ensuring your pupils know what to do if they are being bullied, how you will deal with anyone who bullies and that everyone should take bullying seriously because of the long-term impact it can have on friendships, self-esteem as well as health and well being.” (Bullying UK Website)
Their free resource is an Agony Aunt / Uncle format where they offer advice to each other! For example: What to do if bullies have taken your friends away.
Smart School Councils – This site provides Ideas for School Councils about bullying.
The Anti Bullying Alliance provides an anti-bullying assembly and lessons plans.
