During the recent national Anti-Bullying week, Derbyshire FA delivered workshops in schools to over 500 children on Respect, Behaviour and the Anti-Bullying workshop theme ‘We are all Different - We are all the Same’.
National Anti-Bullying week took place during Monday 13th – Friday 17th October 2017 with a focus on celebrating difference; ‘We are all Different- We are all the same’. The Derbyshire FA used the ethos and impact of The FA Respect Programme to put together a workshop in Primary Schools across Derbyshire- which focussed on:
- Behaviour in Football and Schools.
- Consequences of our behaviour.
- The FA Respect Programme and School values.
- What is bullying?
- What makes people different?
- Working together.
- Who to tell when we are being bullied or when something is wrong.
Children from Inkersall Primary School, St. Thomas Catholic Primary School, Pennine Way Junior Academy, Linton Primary School and Chaucer Primary School, benefited and engaged in the workshops, with The Co-operative taking part and supporting the presentation at Inkersall.
Future workshops have also been planned at Eureka Primary and Fairmeadows Foundation Primary School within the next few weeks.
Cath Morton, Derbyshire FA Respect Lead and County Welfare Officer, said “The national Anti-Bullying week, focussing on celebrating difference, was a perfect opportunity to link together the meaning of the FA Respect programme and School values to put across the importance of how behaviour effects others, and how everyone can help and support others in achieving their potential.”
