Our Anti-Bullying drama workshop uses professional theatrical techniques to encourage respect and celebrate diverse viewpoints

Bullying (online and face to face) is an issue that children need to be equipped to address.

In one day we spread a positive and inclusive anti-bullying message and use drama techniques to help prevent bullying - while unifying the children through the activity itself.

Our workshops are facilitated by professional actors who are also experienced in working in primary schools. Our professionals know how to quickly build trust among the group and adapt to their specific needs.

These sessions between 40 and 50 minutes for EYFS and KS1, and between 45 and 70 minutes for KS2. Our recommended schedule for a full day includes 5 sessions of 50 minutes each.

Workshop Content

The children use drama-based games and facilitated storytelling exercises to:

  • Explore and celebrate what makes them, and others, unique.

  • Identify different types of bullying.

  • Imagine how bullying makes other people feel.

  • Learn to see themselves, others and their relationships from different perspectives.

  • Discover that they can identify problems and take individual and/or collective action to prevent bullying.

  • Create a 'Creative Conclusion' by working as a team and embodying many of the qualities they’ve been learning about, such as openness to alternative viewpoints and willingness to challenge the status quo.
