The Bullying Intervention Group
runs the national award scheme to recognise excellence in bullying intervention.
Whether your school or service is at the start of your journey, or already advanced, we can help. We provide the latest on practice, research, pupil's views, training and advice.
Media stories suggest millions of children and young people dread going back to school because of bullying. But it does not have to be this way. In our secondary schools, including those not yet awarded the BIG Award, 87% of students think their school deals with bullying OK or very well! Around half of those who had been bullied said it happened a long time ago. Bullying is reduced, cyberbullying is low. See our latest report of 11,850 students' views. Or read about the most effective practice. In schools that students rate as effective, only 7% say they've been bullied a lot. Effective schools are 3.5 X more likely to get the bullying to stop, diversity is valued and students have strong involvement in the strategy. But we want even these figures to go down further! Why not sign up and change the landscape for your pupils?

'The BIG Award is an excellent comprehensive muu replica watches process to engage the whole school population in Anti Bullying. The website provides information and great resources as well as the stages necessary to implement strategies to ensure a whole school approach. The support is fantastic and the training is great for staff and pupils as it is tailored to your needs.

PEER MENTORING TRAINING
Childcare minister Sam Gyimiah recently told a select committee that introducing peer to peer support networks in schools will form part of the government efforts to improve the mental health of young people. "Often, whether it is bullying or some of the things that cause [mental health problems] in the first place, young people are there and they see it happening to their friends' he said. Our training course can recognise the good work of your peer mentors and give them a recognised qualification for their work.
