Cyberbullying Programme for Primary Schools - ‘Click’

Cyberbullying is any form of bullying that is carried out through the use of electronic media devices, such as computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets, or gaming consoles. Messaging apps, gaming sites and chat rooms such as Facebook, XBox Live, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat and other chat rooms can be great fun and a positive experience but it’s when these platforms become a place to bully and control someone the problem’s start.

There are many forms of cyberbullying which include; harassment, cyberstalking, socially excluding others from group chats, impersonation, use of threatening behaviour, spreading rumors and gossip and blackmail and grooming.

Slough are rolling out the ‘Click’ play which has been funded by the Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner for Year 7 students across Berkshire.  Slough will be rolling out the play across Primary schools on 8th – 12th November 2018

Anti-Bullying Alliance

 

Anti-Bullying Alliance

The Anti-Bullying Alliance was established by the NSPCC and the National Children's Bureau in 2002 and is hosted by the National Children's Bureau and is a coalition of organisations and individuals that are united against bullying and they:

  • Support learning and sharing best practice through membership;
  • Raise awareness of bullying through Anti-Bullying Week;
  • Deliver programme’s to help stop bullying and bring lasting change to children's lives;

There is no pressure on the children to wear the latest fashion or for parents to buy expensive costumes.  All they have to do to take part is wear odd socks to school, it couldn’t be simpler!  Odd Socks day will take place on Monday 12th November 2018 to help raise awareness for Anti-Bullying Week.
