Sometimes children are unkind to each other. That's a normal part of social development.
However, there is a clear difference between one-off instances of meanness and persistent, targeted bullying. Educating our children and parents about that difference is the first crucial step in de-escalating incidents and promoting an ethos of tolerance and understanding in our schools.
Use this pack to work in partnership with parents and pupils to provide clarity about what bullying is and isn't.
And according to an official report by Public Health England:
"By effectively preventing and tackling bullying, schools can help to create safe, disciplined environments where pupils are able to learn and fulfil their potential."
