It’s finally here! Anti Bullying Week 2012 – here is BeatBullying’s guide to how you can get involved.

This Anti Bullying Week, BeatBullying is on a mission to make bullying unacceptable.

Whether you’re 5 or 55, there is always something you can do to make bullying unacceptable. BeatBullying.org have come up with a range of activities, ideas, mini-missions and simple actions you can do by yourself that will really make a difference. Take a look at theirideas here: http://www.beatbullying.org/abw2012/dox/Solo-Missions.html

To (literally) kick-start Anti Bullying Week, the brilliant Harlequins rugby team dedicated their match on Friday against Bath to BeatBullying (http://www.quins.co.uk/news/6610.php#.UKoNh4dSjAY).

Beatbullying were also delighted to have cast members from Channel 4’s flagship youth drama Hollyoaks there supporting us. BeatBullying has been working with Channel 4 education on a series of events and initiatives. Find out more here: http://www.beatbullying.org/Hollyoaks/index.html

This Thursday 22nd November, teachers alone or with their class can tune in to our live lesson with TES live from Google HQ. The 30 minute lesson – How to make bullying unacceptable in your school – will provide great ideas for activities that can be used in the classroom to inspire students to become anti-bullying advocates. Find out all the details at: http://www.beatbullying.org/tes/

Teachers will also have the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences this Friday 23rd November via a live webchat on Peer Mentoring and other strategies to tackle bullying in your school. Keep an eye on the  BeatBullying.org website over the next couple of days for more details.

The live lesson and the webchat are suitable for both primary and secondary school teachers and no registration is required. Teachers who take will have the opportunity to get CyberMentors training at a special price if schools sign up before the end of the year.

They also have lots of free resources for teachers – including lesson plans, mission-based assembly ideas, and simple activities that you can run as a class, or even as a whole school. They have missions tailored to Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. Take a look here:http://www.beatbullying.org/abw2012/dox/School-Resources.html

Anti Bullying Week also marks BeatBullying’s 10th birthday, and throughout the week schools across the country will be holding their own BeatBullying parties. It’s not too late to access materials for your school if you haven’t already done so. Download your party pack here: http://www.beatbullying.org/abw2012/dox/The-Ultimate-Mission.html.

Finally, they still have a small number of our popular blue BeatBullying wristbands available to purchase via their website:http://www.beatbullying.org/abw2012/dox/wristbands.html.
