Young people urged to have their say on updated anti-bullying guidance, 14/11/2018 [W]
The Welsh Government have released updated anti-bullying guidance, and are asking young people to have their say on it.
The guidance builds on early consultations and engagement with young people and stakeholders, attempting to address concerns or queries that they raised in those early stages, such as definitions of what is and is not bullying.
For young people, the proposals provide a definition of bullying, what you should do if you are bullied, and what you can do if you tell your school and nothing is happening. It includes guidance on how to deal with the feelings that bullying creates and what to do if you worry that you have bullied someone.
For schools the guidance covers a definition of bullying, specific types of bullying, potential motivations, online bullying, effective anti-bullying strategies, governance, protection and a variety of other matters.
The deadline to respond to the consultation with your views is 15 February 2019.
There is more information available on the Welsh Government’s website, including an easy-read consultation document, a copy of the guidance for five to eleven year olds, one for eleven to eighteen year olds, and a copy for schools.
