Campaigns and current events

Disrespect Nobody

The  second phase of the Home Office Disrespect Nobody campaign will run from 2 February until the end of March 2017. The campaign is focussed on digital and mobile first and will also run on TV aimed at young people, such as The Brit Awards and the Big Bang Theory, on radio, Spotify, cinema and online including catch up TV, X-Box, YouTube and Snapchat.  The first TV advert will run in the evening of Thursday 2 February in the Hollyoaks advertising break. 

The aim of the Disrespect NoBody campaign is to prevent young people, both boys and girls aged 12 to 18 years old from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships. 

For 2017 the focus of the campaign will be consent and sexting, which are both issues where many young people need more education and information. The campaign advertising directs young people to the website www.disrespectnobody.co.uk where they can get further information and signposts them to organisations who can provide support.

Be Real - the Campaign for Body Confidence

The Be Real Campaign has launched its Body Confidence Campaign Toolkit for Schools, featuring teaching ideas, best practice guidance and campaign tools designed to support teachers of 11-16s when creating a whole-school approach to body confidence. The Toolkit is available for free download here

Schools can also be awarded with the Be Real Campaign school badge for their support and commitment in promoting body confidence. To be awarded with a Be Real Campaign school badge, schools can share their story once they’ve downloaded the Toolkit here: http://www.berealcampaign.co.uk/schools

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has endorsed Public Health England’s e-Bug resource and recommends that schools use e-Bug to teach children about hygiene, infections and antibiotics.

Reading Well

Reading Well for Young People (RWYP) is a public library scheme to help 13-18 year olds manage their mental health, wellbeing and resilience using recommended reading. Since July 2016 this national campaign is being promoted in Wiltshire libraries. Further details and related resources can be found here.

Antibiotic Badge Competition 

World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW), 14-20 November 2016, aimed to increase the awareness of global antibiotic resistance and how we can all help preserve this valuable resource by following certain behaviours.

to support the campaign a badge design competition was launched for primary schools.  Eleven schools participated either as a team or from individual pupils.  Helen Drown from the School Effectiveness Team, Wiltshire Council and the Coordinator for Town Hall Arts, Jo Beal, were enlisted for the difficult task of judging the entries.  We extend our thanks for their valuable contribution and time in helping us.

Best entries won “Glow and Show” kits for their individual schools and the presentations of both the kit and certificates were met with enthusiasm.    

Best and highly commended entries are part of a rolling display in eight main libraries in Wiltshire:
