Resources for parents
Parents and carers can use our Interactive Anti-Bullying Parent Information Tool. If you're worried about your child being bullied, concerned about cyberbullying, want to know how to make a complaint or what your child's school should be doing, you can find out in an easy-to-use, interactive way.
As a parent you may express a wide range of emotions from anger to confusion to guilt, from hearing your child is being bullied and you may not know the first step to resolving the issue, but here are some useful resources to look at.
Tackling bullying - Listen to this podcast, produced by Contact A Family, where expert SEN advisers discuss the issue of the bullying of disabled children, and how as a parent you can help to resolve it.
They won’t believe me – This guide, written by Mencap, is about the bullying of disabled children. It provides information about why children with disabilities are more vulnerable to bullying and what teachers can do to stop bullying occurring in their classrooms. The information and quotes provided in the booklet is based on information children and parents gave when Mencap provided workshops in the West Midlands area. The booklet has been collated with parents and teachers in mind.
Bullying: A guide for parents - This guide, written by the National Autistic Society, explains the term bullying, the signs to look out for if your child is being bullied, but cannot communicate it to you, and how it might affect your child.
