The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has published advice and guidance for schools and education authorities on how to address bullying in schools with a focus on using data to improve anti-bullying strategies. The guide covers four main areas:
- creating an anti-bullying culture in schools;
- finding ways for students and staff to report bullying incidents;
- finding ways to record and review the data on bullying;
- communicating the anti-bullying messages.
Each area contains a set of questions for education professionals to ask themselves when carrying out steps one to four, above. The questions aim to help you review the current practices in your school, and identify areas for improvement.
