We want to Make A Noise to our MPs about bullying! Please help us by filling in our short form to contact your MP and share the action with your friends and family.
Research shows that 30% of children have been bullied in the last year alone – with approximately one child in every classroom experiencing bullying each day. Bullying has a significant impact on a child’s life, and this can last well into adulthood with adults who were bullied as children being more likely to leave school with no qualifications, be unemployed and experience a range of mental health issues.
This is why we need your help to call for change! Please join us in promoting our following asks:
- Schools should be required to have an anti-bullying lead responsible for coordinating an anti-bullying strategy.
- Initial teacher training should include anti-bullying training: Currently, teachers are not required to even know what bullying is as part of their initial teacher training.
- There should be a duty to record bullying in schools in England as there currently is for schools in Northern Ireland.
We have a template email set up for you to use to contact your MP – so it couldn’t be easier.
