preventing and tackling bullying - Advice for headteachers, staff and governing bodies

13 June 2013

The Department for Education has published new guidance on preventing and tackling bullying in schools. The guidance sets out the legal obligations and powers of schools to tackle bullying and the underlying principles of existing effective anti-bullying strategies and includes guidance on cyber-bullying and bullying outside of school premises.

The guidance is clear and welcome assistance for schools who should take heed of this advice. Doing so will be of considerable assistance in preventing, responding to and defending future legal claims.
