              Reach Out, Anti Bullying Week, (Peer on Peer Harassment)

                Monday 13 November 2023 - Friday 17 November 2023


                Peer on Peer Sexual Harassment - Group Tutorial Resources

                Odd Socks Day - Monday 13th November.

                Anti-Bullying Week: the UK theme this year is 'reach out'. Bullying and harassment affects millions of lives and can leave us feeling hopeless. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it. And it starts by reaching out. Whether it’s in college, at home, in the community or online, let’s reach out and show each other the support we need. Reach out to someone you trust if you need to talk. Reach out to someone you know is being bullied or harassed. Reach out and consider a new approach.

                Peer-on-peer harassment is any form of physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse, and coercive control exercised between children/young people, and within their relationships (both intimate and non-intimate), friendships, and wider peer associations. Some examples of sexual harassment can include

                • making sexual comments, remarks, jokes either face-to face or online

                • lifting up skirts or taking a picture under a person’s clothing without them knowing

                • making nasty comments about someone’s body, gender, sexuality or looks to cause them humiliation, distress or alarm

                • image-based abuse, such as sharing a nude/semi-nude photo or video without the consent of the person pictured

                • sending unwanted sexual, explicit or pornographic photographs/videos to someone

                We will be working with the North Wales Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre to deliver workshops for learners, 'Don't Steal My Future'.

                                    • Working to make educational and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBT+ communities; and
                                    • Promoting the welfare of LGBT+ people, by ensuring that the education system recognises and enables LGBT+ people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.

                                                            What is Net-Zero?

                                                            It means balancing the amount of greenhouse gases we produce with the amount we remove from the atmosphere
