Anti-Bullying Week is an annual UK event, held in the third week in November which aims to raise awareness of bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere, and to highlight ways of preventing and responding to it.
It started in 2002 and has since grown to become a significant event in the calendars of children, families and schools with an estimated 80% of schools in the UK taking part.
Each year there is a theme for the week that is tailored to specific issues. This year, the theme is' Make Some Noise'.
Odd Socks Day forms part of Anti-Bullying Week campaign and took place on the Monday of Anti-Bullying Week. Fronted by the Anti-Bullying Alliance patron and CBeebies presenter, Andy Day and his band Andy and the Odd Socks, millions of children and adults went to school or work this week in odd socks day to highlight what makes us all unique and help prevent bullying.
