The DES anti-bullying procedures recommend a school wide approach to dealing with bullying behaviour as a key element of best practice. 

Key to addressing bullying, within the school environment, is the fostering of an ethos under which bullying is unacceptable. A school wide anti-bullying ethos is enhanced and supported by:

  • The development of a school wide anti-bullying policy.
  • A climate that encourages the disclosure of bullying behaviour.
  • Anti-bullying awareness raising measures amongst teachers, students and parents.
  • A school wide agreement regarding procedures and supports.
  • Collaboration with local agencies.
  • Ongoing evaluation of the overall effectiveness of the anti-bullying work.
