Anti-bullying campaigns are a key priority for the government.

The Government has recently updated its advice for headteachers, staff and governing bodies on tacking bullying, with the new publication of Preventing and tackling bullying - advice for headteachers, staff and governing bodies, December 2011 (PDF, 54 Kb). The document places an emphasis on the call for every school to have measures in place that ‘encourage good behaviour, respect, and to prevent all forms of bullying amongst pupils.’

The DfE’s webpage also has a number of links to associated organisations that support tackling bullying.

Pearson Assessment is proud to be supporters of the Big March 2012 run by the charity Beatbullying. The Beatbullying project has just been granted £1.3m from Social Action Fund. 

For products that can assist with the effects of bullying and self image take a look at the Reynolds Bully-Victimization Scales for Schools and our assessment Self Image Profiles (SIP).
