Across Anti-Bullying Week, the Foundation and the Club have delivered a number of activities to show support for the campaign.
Monday marked Odd Socks Day, with first-team players and staff wearing odd socks at training to celebrate ‘what makes us all equal’. Odd Socks Day provides an opportunity for people to have fun, be yourself and spread awareness for the core values that Anti-Bullying Week promotes. Students at Primary Schools submitted entires to our Odd Socks Day competition, designing their own colourful socks.
Also this week, students at Copdock Primary School took part in a ‘Make a Noise’ workshop delivered by Foundation staff, with a specific focus on the difference between banter and bullying.
Other primary schools across Suffolk also participated in Anti-Bullying workshops thanks to the Foundation’s Premier League Primary Stars programme, with students being taught about describing the difference between banter and bullying, identifying when and how banter can become bullying, explaining what they can do to speak up against bullying and to make sure banter never becomes bullying.
Participants also created their own superhero to support people being bullied, as well as making a pledge for how they will support this within their school.
