Odd Socks Day 2019

On Tuesday 12 November, we celebrate Odd Socks Day for Anti-Bullying Week. Following on the success of last year’s Odd Socks Day – which reached almost 4 million students across the country – Forge students are invited to wear odd socks to school – students do not have to make a donation to wear odd socks.

Odd Socks Day celebrates what makes us all unique and highlights the issue of bullying in a fun way. You don’t need to spend money on a costume, simply wear your favourite odd socks to symbolize how we are all different and to encourage children to be themselves, accepting of one another and to celebrate difference.

Anti-Bullying Week, supported by O2, is urging everyone to remember that “Change Starts With Us” underlining how everyday acts like listening to young people, having a conversation, thinking about the impact of our words or stopping before hitting ‘like’ on a hurtful social media post, can all help to reduce bullying.

Anti-Bullying Week is expected to be celebrated in over three-quarters of schools across England between 11 to 15 November and we have a number of activities planned with students across the week.
