Looking to support students this Anti-Bullying Week?
Posted: Thu, 11 Nov 2021 16:22
Public Health England's new Bullying and cyberbullying resource can help students discuss the emotional impact of bullying, while exploring how to respond safely.
With research showing that one in four children who experienced online bullying did not report it to anyone, this lesson plan contains a short film and scenario-based activities to explore with students how they can support each other and seek help.
Anti-Bullying Week 2021 takes place 15-19 November, so why not head to the School Zone to download this resource, which supports Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education.
Help parents and carers support young people's wellbeing at home
Anti-Bullying Week's theme this year is kindness, and the new self-care resource explores what young people can do to show kindness to others or to themselves.
To help them continue this journey at home you can download the free self-care sharing with families toolkit. The toolkit, including wording and imagery to
use in school newsletters, websites or social media channels, will help you communicate to parents and carers what they can do to support their child's mental wellbeing and self-care habits at home.
It's the little things that matter
There are little things we can all do to look after our mental health, and the NHS approved Every Mind Matters Mind Plan can help you find what works for you.
By taking a short quiz, you'll be given a personalised Mind Plan containing practical advice to support your mental wellbeing. The plan can help you deal with stress and anxiety, improve your sleep, boost your mood or help you feel more in control.
