13 November 2017: Anti-bullying week

Anti-bullying week is being held between 13 and 17 November 2017. It’s organised by Anti-Bullying Alliance.  

Events taking place throughout the week can be followed on social media using #antibullyingweek and #abw17.

This year, the theme will promote difference and equality in schools with the tag-line ‘All Different, All Equal’.

Bullying and harassment means any unwanted behaviour that makes someone feel intimidated, degraded, humiliated or offended.

It can occur face-to-face, in written communications, by phone or through email.

It is not necessarily always obvious or apparent to others, and may happen in the workplace without an employer’s awareness.

Examples of bullying / harassing behaviour can include:

  • spreading malicious rumours or insulting someone
  • exclusion or victimisation
  • unfair treatment
  • deliberately undermining a competent worker by constant criticism

Here’s some useful tools for members:
