The theme is the Power for Good ( encouraging young people to use their Power for Good – by understanding the ways in which they are powerful  and encouraging individual and collective action to stop bullying and create the best world possible.)


Success Criteria

1)Share the key messages
2)Make your writing clear, bold and bright
3)Use images to explain your ideas.

Theme for the week:

It doesn’t matter what colour hair you have; how you speak; how you walk; how you talk – it is not your

fault if you get bullied. We are all different in some way and that’s what makes us amazing.



◊ Whether you are a boy or a girl, old or young, big or small – bullying makes you feel rubbish and it’s okay to be upset about it. The important thing is that you tell someone about it.

◊ If you feel you can, talk to a teacher you trust or your parents, brother or sister. If you don’t want to do that you can always call Childline 0800 11 11 or visit

◊ Keep a record of what happened, when it happened, and who was involved. If the bullying is online, keep the evidence – save or copy any photos, videos, texts, emails or posts.

◊ It can be tempting if you are being bullied to retaliate – to send a horrible message back to someone, to try and embarrass and hurt the other person, or to fight back. This is not a good idea – you might end up getting into trouble or get yourself even more hurt.

◊ Think about other ways you can respond to bullying. For example, practice saying: “I don’t like it when you say that/do that – please stop.” Think about other people who can help you if you are being bullied – this could be other classmates, or a teacher.

◊ Only hang out with people who make you feel good about yourself. If someone constantly puts you down they are not a real friend and not worth your time.

◊ Be kind to yourself, and do things that make you feel good, relax and make new friends. You might play an instrument; write lyrics;

draw cartoons; dance; act or join a sports club. This is your life so make sure it’s the best life possible – don’t let anyone bring you down.
