Anti-Bullying Week 2015

This year's anti-bullying week will run between 16th–20th November and this year the Welsh Government are going with the theme ‘Bullying is everyone’s business’. Show your support for anti-bullying week with the hashtag #antibullyingweek.


We are all aware that bullying takes places in all schools to some degree. Unfortunately there will always be a small number of young people who wish to victimise or bully another individual, but we will continue to educate to fight against bullying.


Bullying can take many forms, but the three main types are:

  • physical – hitting, kicking, taking belongings, sexual harassment or aggression
  • verbal – name calling, insulting, making offensive remarks
  • indirect – spreading nasty stories about someone, exclusion from social groups, being made the subject of malicious rumours, sending malicious e-mails or text messages on mobile phones.
