Support Programmes: Anti-Bullying

Making a difference together: A whole school approach to bullying

Anti-bullying training for primary, secondary and special schools, and PRUs to help prevent bullying and support pupils identified with SEND at risk of bullying.

A range of anti-bullying training

Achievement for All's anti-bullying training provides staff in schools the opportunity to look in detail at their school’s approaches to dealing with bullying and in particular the bullying of learners with SEND. It helps staff to consider the actions they can take in their role to prevent and deal with bullying and how to develop their professional practice. The training workshops are available to ALL schools, academies, special schools and PRUs whether registered or not with the Achievement for All schools programme.

Why consider anti-bullying training?

Research suggests that children and young people with disabilities are more likely to be bullied at school compared to those students with no known disabilities.

"We thought we were well organised within school after giving the subject a high profile over the past few years, but your training day shows that we still have some way to go if we are to achieve our targets."

Peter Oliver, Deputy Head Teacher, Berwick Middle School.

The link between wellbeing and achievement is well known, and Ofsted has a strong focus on behaviour and safety in schools. Ofsted Inspectors will always look at how well children and learners are helped and protected so that they are kept safe and will make a written judgement under leadership and management in the report about whether or not the arrangements for safeguarding children and learners are effective.

Achievement for All, in partnership with the Anti-Bullying Alliance, the Council for Disabled Children and Contact a Family, delivered an innovative programme of work to safeguard children with SEND from bullying in schools. More than 1,500 schools benefitted from the free training during the project and their feedback indicates that 90% of participating schools have made a range of improvements and noted changes to school culture in the effectiveness of dealing with SEND bullying. Many schools asked if we could provide training specifically for their school and now we can.

What does the Anti-Bullying Training offer?

We have developed a range of workshops for different audiences in schools to help staff prevent bullying and deal with it effectively when it does occur. The focus is on the bullying of learners with SEND.

All the coaches delivering the workshops are experienced education professionals with a special interest in behaviour and wellbeing. They are all highly experienced in delivering anti-bullying training.

We can deliver full day, half day or twilight sessions on your own premises for your staff. You may wish to club together with other local schools to share the cost.
