Odd Socks Day to support Anti-Bullying weeks
On Wednesday, children came to school a little puzzled to why they had been asked to wear odd socks that day. All was explained in the morning assembly...
Andy Day (from Cbeebies) and the Odd Sock band worked together with the Anti-Bullying Alliance to create a song called Unique.
Their songs are all about being unique and appreciating others unique qualities. It’s a wellknown fact that encouraging acceptance of individuality at an early age can help prevent bullying later in life.
By wearing odd sock our aims were -
• to empower children to celebrate what makes them, and others, unique
• help children to understand how important it is that every child feels valued and included in school, able to be themselves, without fear of bullying
• enable teachers and school support staff to celebrate what makes us ‘all different, all equal’ by celebrating difference and equality and taking individual and collective action to prevent bullying, creating safe environments where children can be themselves
Thank you to everyone that has supported this very important message with the aim to stamp out any sort of bullying at Roebuck Academy!
