‘Odd Socks’ Day at the Prep
Pupils celebrate their individuality in support of national Anti-Bullying Week.
In support of national Anti-Bullying Week (13th - 17th November), our Prep pupils and staff today took part in ‘Odd Socks Day’. Aimed at early years and primary school children across the UK, the day encourages youngsters to mix up their socks and celebrate their uniqueness. There is no pressure to wear the latest fashion or to buy expensive costumes – it’s simply a fun opportunity for children to express themselves and appreciate their individuality.
Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying throughout the year. The theme this year is 'All Different, All Equal' with the aims to:
- empower children and young people to celebrate what makes them, and others, unique
- help children and young people understand how important it is that every child feels valued and included in school, able to be themselves, without fear of bullying
- encourage parents and carers to work with their school and talk to their children about bullying, difference and equality
- enable teachers and other children’s workforce professionals to celebrate what makes us ‘all different, all equal’ and celebrate difference and equality. Encouraging them to take individual and collective action to prevent bullying, creating safe environments where children can be themselves.
