Anti-bullying Week, organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum (both parts of the National Children’s Bureau), took place between 13th and 17th November. According to its website, the event aimed 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
