Next week is anti-bullying week and we plan to use Monday as a way of introducing the children to this theme. We want to participate in ‘Odd-socks day’. This simple action – to wear completely normal uniform other than the most odd socks you can manage – is a powerful way to start conversations about uniqueness, whilst underlining the commonality of the similarity that they are all socks. We will use this as a starting point to discuss how bullying regarding ‘differences’ is ignorant, cruel and has no place in our school and lives. No money is required – just remember the odd socks!
