This upcoming week is National Anti-Bullying Week in the UK.
This initiative runs from 14th-18th Nov 2016 and this years theme is : ‘Power For Good’
Now that you’ve decided that you are ready to do something about your students safety I would recommend bookmarking the CommonSenseMedia Digital Citizenship Curriculum:
