Creating a Whole School Approach to Anti-Bullying
A Process Guide for Staff to Implement in School - A whole school approach is where every person who is part of a school, irrespective of their position, is not only aware of the school's approach to tackling bullying, but participates in its delivery. All attempts to adopt a whole school approach would require participation and involvement from every member of the school community; everybody has a role to play.
Work has been initiated within the county to improve the provision for responding to bullying within our educational settings. By utilising the data from the Gloucestershire Online Pupil Survey, individual schools have used this information to inform the construction of an effective anti-bullying policy, working alongside the safeguarding measures in place within the school.
Some schools have been involved with the Healthy Schools Plus work and have chosen to tackle bullying as part of their intervention work to increase the awareness of bullying within the school.
Sadly, bullying WILL happen in schools but we must ensure that all children and young people within our county gain confidence to report these incidences so that they can be dealt with promptly and effectively by schools. Certainly since 2006, the Gloucestershire Online Pupil Survey has shown throughout the county bullying has decreased in schools and that pupils report their confidence in how schools are dealing with bullying is increasing.
Improved practice reduces the number of incidents of bullying and increases the effectiveness of handling incidents.
