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 'very well'. Around half of the students who had ever been bullied told us it happened 'a long time ago'.
In effective schools, bullying is reduced, cyberbullying is low. 

Don't believe that it is 'endemic' as some say! We know it can be different.

Effective panerai replica watches schools are three and a half times more likely to get the bullying to stop,diversity is valued and students have input into the strategy. But we want even these figures to improve!  Why not sign up and change the landscape for your pupils?
