Odd Socks Day

What is Odd Socks day?

Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

There is no pressure to wear the latest fashion or for parents to buy expensive costumes.  All you have to do to take part is wear odd socks to your school or workplace, it couldn’t be simpler!  Odd Socks day will take place on the first day of Anti Bullying Week each year to help raise awareness of bullying. We would like to invite participating schools and workplaces to ask participants to make a £1 donation – or any donation you think appropriate – to support us in continuing to coordinate the week every year.

You do not have to raise money to take part – the most important thing is the message of Odd Socks Day – and any money raised for us is a bonus! Make sure you encourage other schools in your local area to get involved!

Walk to School Week

 

Get your happy feet on, it’s time to celebrate.
Living Streets have created the greatest national Walk to School celebration, where pupils and grown-ups around the UK unite for one week of walking to school.

This five-day walking challenge aimed at primary schools is a fun and engaging week-long activity, raising awareness and celebrating walking for all. Pupils will be well on their way to reaching their recommended 60 minutes minimum of physical activity per day before even reaching the school gates! Not only will it set them up for a positive day in the classroom, it will also help create healthy habits for life.

Black History Month

What is Black History Month UK and why is it celebrated?

Black History Month in the UK celebrates the history, arts and culture of black British people. Awareness of, and education about, the history of white British people is well-established, but black British history is underreported and underrepresented. Dedicating a month to it every year helps redress that balance, and helps us all learn more about our shared History as Britons.

How is Black History Month UK celebrated?

Throughout October there are typically many newspaper and magazine articles as well as TV programmes about Black British history. Black History Month Magazine is central to the celebrations. They select a focus for the celebrations each year.

The focus for Black History Month UK 2020 is on the role and contributions of black women.
