As parents and carers we all want our children to be happy and safe, and it is natural to worry about bullying - particularly if we have experienced bullying ourselves or think our child may be more vulnerable to bullying. The good news is you are not alone!
All next week ISIB will be taking part in ‘The Anti-Bullying Alliance’ to keep children safe. All classes will be holding anti bullying events and lessons with activities to support inclusive behaviour.
Part of this is Odd Sock day on Monday when everyone is invited to wear outrageous socks as long as they are odd (not a pair), it represents the diversity of individuals and that we all stand out in some way. Check it out here Odd Sock Day
The most common form of bullying is simple name calling including through digital means, this accounts for a quarter of all bullying so the better and more positive conversations we can have and the more understanding of others we learn then the less it happens.
Remember we never know the battle someone else may be fighting!!!
