Shine a spotlight on bullying

Next week is anti bullying week (13-17 November)

All different, all equal, antibullying, anti bullying alliance

No one likes to think that their children might be bullied at school, and thankfully it’s an exception. But sadly it can happen. NSPCC figures suggest that 24,000 Childline counselling sessions with children about bullying were held in 2016/17, and more than 16,000 young people were absent from school due to bullying. Next week it’s Anti Bullying Week, (13 – 17 November).

We've developed guidance and a procedure for anyone in a school or youth setting to report an incident, however minor, anonymously if necessary.

Figures also suggest that there were more than 12,000 counselling sessions with Childline last year about online bullying. Here are some online safety resources from NSPCC that can help keep children safe online.
