Preventing bullying behaviour

This resource covers the process of creating an effective anti-bullying policy. It includes practical suggestions as well as links to additional reading to broaden and deepen your knowledge of bullying and cyber-bullying.

Taking steps to prevent bullying and challenging unacceptable behaviour when it does occur improves the confidence and well-being of all children and young people; it also provides guidelines and controls for those whose behaviour is a concern. One of the key measures to prevent bullying behaviour is an anti-bullying policy that is understood and adhered to by staff, volunteers, parents and guardians, and children and young people.

Taken from our online training course, Preventing Bullying, which has been written in partnership with leading anti-bullying charity, Kidscape, this resource looks at creating an effective anti-bullying policy with practical suggestions about how this can be achieved. Suggestions about what you can do as an individual are also included.
