Cyberbullying guidance and practical PSHE toolkit
To support schools develop effective strategies to understand, prevent and respond to cyberbullying we have launched new cyberbullying guidance along with a practical PSHE toolkit for teachers.
Funded by the Government Equalities Office and European Union as part of our work as the UK Safer Internet Centre, these resources will help schools address issues such as cyberbullying, sexting and peer pressure online.
Childnet's CEO Will Gardner says:
“In the wake of recent figures of an 88% increase in calls to Childline about cyberbullying in the last five years, it is crucial that school leaders understand the positives and negatives of internet culture within their communities and have the management strategies required.
“We know that cyberbullying is the key online safety issue that schools face; and we know the serious long-lasting impact it can have on children. In the development of our guidance and teaching resources we have been consulting with young people, teachers and experts to collect practical strategies for effectively preventing and responding to cyberbullying.”
