At Anston Hillcrest we understand the importance of childrens happiness and well-being. This is why we have decided to have our very own anti-bullying officers within school. These have been chosen for in a voting system by the rest of the class. 2 or 3 Children from each class have been chosen. The job of these children will be to monitor any incidents within their class and report them to a teacher or the Anti Bullying lead- Miss Curle. The children in each class also know that if they are worried about something but they themselves do not want to tell a teacher they can pass this onto their teacher via the Anti- Bullying officers.
Anti-Bullying Week 15th November 2021
In order to promote the importance of Anti-Bullying, on Monday 15th November, to kick start Anti-Bullying Week, we took part in:
Odd Socks Day!
We wore odd socks! It was a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique in Anti-Bullying Week!
What is Odd Socks day?
Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!
There is no pressure to wear the latest fashion or for parents to buy expensive costumes. All we do is ask children to wear odd socks to school, it couldn’t be simpler! Odd Socks day will always place on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week each year to help raise awareness of bullying. We invite parents/carers to make a £1 donation - or any donation they think appropriate - to support us in continuing to coordinate the week every year
You can find out more details about Odd Socks day and see some really useful resources here at the Ant-Bullying Alliance Website.:
We also were lucky enough to appear in the Andy and the Odd Socks Video!
