Safe from bullying series (DCSF)

The Government has produced a series of guidance documents that cover different aspects of bullying. Bullying does not only happen in normal school hours, it can happen anywhere. Children who are badly bullied in school are more likely than others to be bullied outside of it too.

DCSF, Cyberbullying: Supporting school staff (2009)

Staff in schools, as well as children and young people, may become targets of cyberbullying. Like other forms of bullying, cyberbullying can seriously impact on the health, well-being, and self-confidence of those targeted.

Career progression may be affected, and there have been cases where the person bullied has chosen to leave the education sector altogether.

DCSF, Safe to Learn: embedding anti-bullying work in schools, 2007

It flags up the importance of recording and reporting incidents of bullying. It also provides advice on how to address staff training and development needs, so that they can deal with bullying confidently and effectively.

DCSF, Working Together to Safeguard Children, 2006
