Anti-Bullying

Every school is required by law to have a comprehensive anti-bullying policy implemented within their school setting. Schools are required to consult widely with parents/carers, pupils, all staff and governors and their views should be reflected in the policy and practice in dealing with reported incidents and also emphasise the preventative measures in place to combat bullying behaviour.


Effective Responses to Bullying Behaviour (NIABF, 2013)

This resource has been developed by NIABF working alongside representatives from the five Education and Library Boards. Its overall purpose is to promote an anti-bullying culture in schools and help staff provide support both to pupils experiencing bullying and those who engage in bullying behaviour. It provides examples of anti-bullying strategies across four levels of intervention, providing schools with practical suggestions on how bullying can be addressed. The PPDS Team have developed underpinning capacity building to support schools in using this resource. Please see our Training & Development INSET more details.
