This week is Anti-Bullying Week and at Dv8 Sussex, we are getting fully involved!

All staff and students have been asked to wear odd socks today to promote their support against bullying in all forms.

We have been talking to students about why it is important to accept and celebrate people’s differences and to show kindness and tolerance to fellow students.

The Anti-Bullying Alliance manifesto for this year is:

“This year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge.

Anti-Bullying Week is no different. Bullying has a long lasting effect on those who experience and witness it. But by channelling our collective power, through shared efforts and shared ambitions, we can reduce bullying together. From parents and carers, to teachers and politicians, to children and young people, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference.

We’re all a piece in the puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.”
