Most parents want to know how to recognise bullying and what to do if a child is being bullied (or if their child is a bully) as well as how to stop bullying. Many people struggle to define bullying and may not realise there are different types of bullying. Some of the questions people ask include:
- What is bullying?
- Why do people bully?
- Is there such a thing as a typical target of bullying?
- How extensive is bullying in schools?
- How should we deal with bullies?
- What are the signs of bullying?
- What are the effects of bullying?
- Is physical bullying more harmful than verbal bullying or emotional bullying?
- What is the difference between school bullying and workplace bullying?
Bullying — A Complete Approach answers these questions and covers the topics that deal with these issues. Please view our sample pages.
All Resources is committed to eradicating bullying in schools and bullying at work. We provide resource packs to help young people develop confidence and self-esteem which can help reduce incidences of bullying. We also help schools develop anti-bullying policies.
Why do we need an anti-bullying policy in schools and businesses? All organisations need an anti-bullying policy to give direction and guidance in preventing and tackling bullying. The anti-bullying policies and procedures should be available to everyone and a copy should be provided on the school or company website.
- Drafting an anti-bullying policy — it is vital to draft a policy which establishes a code of conduct so that everyone knows what behaviour is acceptable and unacceptable.
- Implementing an anti-bullying policy — once the policy is finalised everyone must agree to abide by it.
- Updating your anti-bullying policy — remember to check government legislation regarding anti-bullying laws and keep your policy up-to-date.
Our bullying resource pack ‘Bullying — A Complete Approach’ provides additional guidance on setting up an anti-bullying policy.
