Anti-Bullying Week is taking place from Monday 11 to Friday 15 November and this year the theme is ‘change starts with us’.
And children have been sharing what they want to change – a new poll suggests that many miss school and avoid spending time with friends to escape bullying.
The Anti-Bullying Alliance – a group of organisations which work together to tackle bullying – have done a survey of over 1,000 11 to 16-year-olds.
It shows that the scale of bullying that children are experiencing on a day-to-day basis. Nearly a quarter (24%) say they have been bullied once a week or more during the last six months.
Nearly one child in every classroom (3%) said they are bullied every day. One in ten children (11%) said they have missed school due to bullying.
