Every year the Anti-Bullying Alliance coordinate national Anti-Bullying Week, a week where children and young people, schools, parents and carers come together with one aim: to stop bullying for all.
This year they are calling on the school community to take action to stop the bullying of all children and young people, including disabled children and those with special educational needs, children who are significantly more likely to experience bullying in schools and the wider community.
It's necessary to take action this Anti-Bullying Week and help to end bullying once and for all. How often do you hear unkind commends about someone's age, distability or sexuality? All too often this kind of behaviour goes unchallenged and can have a serious impact on people.
Do you know that 75,000 young people will be bullied this year because they are gay, and 21,000 will attempt suicide?
This is why NoBystanders has been created, a worldwide movement of people who will stand up to bullying and hurtful language. This Anti-Bullying week you can take the NoBystanders pledge and join the moviment.
