According to the Office for National Statistics, around one in five children aged 10 to 15 years in England and Wales (19%) experienced at least one type of online bullying behaviour in the year ending March 2020, equivalent to 764,000 children. Almost 7 out of 10 children (68%) were emotionally affected by the online bullying.

Our anti-bullying workshops aim to enable young people to:

  • understand different forms of bullying
  • identify appropriate ways to respond
  • develop awareness of the consequences for victims, onlookers and bullies
  • understand how to support friends that are being bullied
  • understand how to use social media responsibly
  • explore being a good friend and showing empathy.

All online sessions will be delivered via Teams or Zoom. There will be a pre-call with a member of the Learning Team before the session to test the connection, understand the classroom set up and share the link to the film. Teachers will also receive a pack containing session materials, extension resources and a list of organisations offering additional support.

Outreach is available to local schools for all our anti bullying sessions. These can be delivered as either half or full day sessions.

Harriet and Mia’s Story (KS2)

Harriet and Mia are creating a dance to put on TikTok and one of them uploads the dance without her friend’s agreement.
