Reporting and recording bullying
The ability to report and record incidents of bullying behaviour is a crucial part of any anti-bullying strategy. Schools and other settings need to encourage and make it as easy as possible for children and young people to report bullying incidents.
Having a ‘one size fits all’ approach is unhelpful when supporting children and young people who experience bullying behaviour.
Therefore having a range of reporting and recording mechanisms is important. In all cases of bullying behaviour it is necessary to act quickly, but even more so if you have a child who may have difficulty communicating what has happened.
ABA and Achievement for All have written a short resource for schools about reporting and recording bullying.
