This episode is published as Anti-Bullying Week 2021 takes place (November 15-19) and looks at how schools can prevent and respond to bullying behaviours and incidents.

Our experts discuss core principles of anti-bullying work and which students are most likely to be victims.

We look at the role of school structures, policies and culture, including what whole-school approaches look like, what makes for an effective anti-bullying policy, using student voice, how to nurture the right school culture, LGBT­+ inclusion, CPD, and family engagement.

We look at the role of education in anti-bullying work, including making children aware of what bullying behaviours are, supporting children to manage disagreements, and signposting to resources.

We preview this year’s #AntiBullyingWeek including its theme of One Kind Word and also look specifically at LGBT+ inclusion work.
