jpgThe BIG Award is an excellent comprehensive 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. I would recommend that all schools use/gain this award to ensure the whole school understands what bullying is and how to develop effective practice.'
