Anti-Bullying Week recognises this need, helping us all to think about ways to be proactive in supporting those around us. A recent survey suggests that one child in every classroom has been bullied every single day during the past six months. More than four in five of the 1, children surveyed saw pupils bullying each other, while more than two in five have witnessed adults bullying each other over the past six months. These instances occur in both face-to-face and online interactions. Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to do if somebody is being bullied.

Odd-socks Day 2018:
The vast majority of adults will probably remember a time in their life when they have either been bullied themselves or seen bullying take place. This could have been in school, at work or somewhere else entirely. There are also some adults who may, at one stage or another, have been a perpetrator of bullying in one form or another. Bullying is unfortunately an extremely common issue and whilst there are many campaigns and awareness events out there to highlight bullying — as well as PSHE lessons and targeted messages in schools - it is still sadly a frequent occurrence, especially amongst children and young people. Bullying can be verbal, physical, emotional, online or a mixture of all of the above.
