Updated Department for Education ‘Preventing and Tacking Bullying’ Guidance

The Department for Education have published new updates to their guidance for schools on preventing and tackling bullying.

The main ‘Preventing and tackling bullying’ guidance document is aimed at school leaders, staff and governing bodies and applies to all schools. It may also be useful for early years providers as well as further education and community settings.

The updated guidance has merged the ‘Supporting children and young people who are bullied: advice for schools’ publication within the ‘Preventing and tackling bullying’ document. The updated version of ‘Preventing and tackling bullying’  now includes additional information about how schools can support children and young people who are bullied, inlcuding cyberbullying.

There is also separate additional guidance available regarding cyberbullying which covers:

  • how schools can prevent and respond to cyberbullying aimed at headteachers and staff
  • how parents and carers can prevent and respond to cyberbullying aimed at children and young people

Schools and settings may find it helpful to share the “advice for parents and carers on cyberbullying” guidance with their communities.
