Anti-Bullying Week

12 November, 2018 - 09:15
by Vanessa Edworthy.  

All Different. All Equal.
Monday 12th November to Friday 16th November is Anti-Bullying week.

Bullying can happen to anyone at any age: in school, in college or University and also in the work place. We have a responsibility to ourselves and others to report any bullying and support those around us to make it STOP!
The long term effects are devastating and can even take lives. We must support others suffering from its effects.

You can make a difference!
Uphold the British Values, speak out and report Bullying.
Bullying takes many form including: Cyber bullying; stalking; intimidation; physical abuse; emotional abuse; destruction of property or another's personal belongings; harassment.

Tolerance and Respect:
Acceptance and promotion of equality not matter what your race, creed, colour, religion, faith, sex, disability or background. Do not tolerate bullying where others are targeted for any of these reasons! Embody mutual respect and treat others how you would like to be treated.

Rule of Law, democracy and Liberty:
If you witness any form of abuse or anyone making negative comments on a person's individual difference, including beliefs or religion, you have the responsibility to stand up for that person.
Don't be afraid say something in support of them on their behalf, particularly when they are unable for themselves.

This could be you speaking to a member of staff or a trusted adult. It's not your responsibility to tackle to the bullying yourself, as you could then become the target.

Everyone has a voice and deserves to be heard.

Support is available for anyone who experiences bullying as we have a college counselling service and College Youth Minister who offer 1:1 support.
