The theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2023 in the UK is ‘Make a Noise to Prevent Bullying’.

We’ve designed these classroom posters to help you mark the day in your classroom and get your students thinking about what they should do if they or someone they know is experiencing bullying.

What’s on the poster?

Walk away and tell someone

You don’t need to listen to someone being horrible to you. Calmly walk away and tell a teacher or another adult with authority so that they can help to stop the bullying.

Stand up for someone being bullied

Make it clear that bullying is unacceptable. If it’s safe to do so, stand up for the victim so that the bullying stops immediately. If you don’t feel safe, you should tell a teacher or another adult immediately so that they can stop it.

Don’t let someone suffer in silence

If you see someone else being bullied, let a teacher or another adult with authority know so that they can help.

Talk about how bullying affects you

One of the best ways to prevent bullying for us all to have honest conversations with our friends, classmates and teachers about how bullying affects us. This could make people think about their own behaviour and help them know how to support us when we experience bullying.

Do anti-bullying posters work?

Let’s be totally honest, of course, anti-bullying posters themselves can’t prevent bullying.

But they can act as a helpful reminder that our behaviours and what we say have an impact on those around us.

Anti-bullying posters can also act as a great starting point for classroom discussions on the topic of bullying and how it can make us feel. And these discussions with their peers and teachers can really help students to think deeply about their behaviour.  

What can teachers do to prevent bullying?

There are many different ways that you can prevent bullying in your classroom. Of course, stepping in when you see instances of bullying or gateway behaviours is essential.

But that’s firefighting a problem that already exists and there are ways to prevent it getting to that stage.

For example, promoting empathy and kindness among your students is a great way to foster a culture that doesn’t accept bullying.

And providing a safe space for open and honest discussions about bullying and its effects can really help students to think about how they behave towards one another. They can also help to build deeper connections between students. Our anti-bullying week posters can be used as a starting point for these discussions.

What can students do to prevent bullying?

It’s really difficult for students themselves to prevent bullying, but there are behaviours they can adopt to help.

For example, they can call out bullying when they see it happening – either to themselves or another person. This year’s Anti-Bullying Week theme, ‘Make a Noise to Prevent Bullying’, aims to give them all the tools they need to do just that, and these posters have been designed to support this.

Making sure that they help to create an atmosphere of respect is also important – and the key to this is ensuring that they understand how their behaviour and words can impact others. Our previous posters can help to support this.
