This week (16th to 20th November 2015) is Anti-Bullying week.
Making bullying everyone’s business is the aim of Welsh Government’s campaign this year.
They believe everyone should be empowered to address bullying.
‘Firstly everyone needs to be able to understand and identify bullying. All bullying behaviour usually has the following four features:
1. It is usually repetitive and persistent.
2. It is intentionally harmful.
3. It involves an imbalance of power, leaving someone feeling helpless to prevent it or put a stop to it.
4. It causes feelings of distress, fear, loneliness and lack of confidence in those who are at the receiving end.’
You can find some useful resources and further information that will help reinforce this message here: http://gov.wales/topics/educationandskills/schoolshome/wellbeing/antibullying/anti-bullying-week/?lang=en
