Schools have a legal duty of care towards their pupils and a responsibility to prevent bullying amongst them.
Schools must have a behaviour policy that outlines measures to encourage good behaviour in schools. Some schools have a separate anti-bullying policy, which sets out how bullying is reported, recorded and what action will be taken.
These policies must be made available to parents and may be on the school website. If not, you can ask the school for a copy.
Schools deal with bullying in different ways. Depending on the age and needs of the children, some schools will use a combination of approaches. Others may just have policies that focus on individual behaviour.
Below are some of the most common ways that schools deal with bullying. Try to talk to your child and find out what they think would help them.
Many schools have a flexible approach that includes a range of responses. This includes training for school staff and lessons for pupils to encourage both staff and pupils to think of ways to make the school more inclusive.
