Supporting young people who are bullying others: a guide for schools.
There is also a new guide on supporting students who bully others. Research from the All Together Anti-Bullying programme found that:
- 43% of children had bullied others occasionally.
- 8% of children reported bullying others frequently.
The research highlights the significant number of students who become involved in bullying others. Research also shows that students who engage in bullying others as just as likely to have poor wellbeing as those who are being bullied.
The new guide from the Anti-Bullying Alliance includes actions steps for working alongside parents, and highlights the value of a restorative approach.
Throughout the summer term protecting students mental health and wellbeing will be a top priority for many schools. These two new resources from the Anti-Bullying Alliance can be used to support schools take a proactive stance in addressing conflict and bullying.
