behaviour and for staff who have responsibility for policy
What support can you offer my school?

quickly about what your pupils, staff and parents think about
bullying and how you are dealing with it through our free
We can advise you on developing your school’s
anti-bullying policy and we can run workshops looking at aspects of
bullying for parents, pupils and staff.
My child is being bullied. What should I do?
Speak to your child’s class teacher or Head of
Year. You can also contact the teacher in the school who is
responsible for dealing with bullying.
If you are not happy with the way your
child's school has dealt with a bullying incident involving her or
him and you wish to make a formal complaint, first of all ask to
see the school's complaints procedure. That will normally
advise you to write to the Chair of Governors.
If you want advice or to find out what options are open to you,
contact the Parents Advice Centre or
the anti-bullying officer in the Behaviour Support Team (see
