Interested in dealing with bullying?
Who is eligible?
Whether you are starting out or fairly expert, BIG Award offers resources, advice, training and updates to help schools, FE Colleges and services for children.
What does an award bring?
Work towards excellent practice and gain recognition for your achievement. The award shows that schools and services take bullying and inclusion seriously.
When your school or service achieves the BIG AWARD you will be able to:-
• Show you work to an externally agreed standard
• Employ consistent and updated good practice
• Actively engage pupils, parents and staff
• Help every child to fulfil their potential and enjoy life, without fear of being bullied
Your organisation will be rewarded for its achievements.
Parents will have confidence in the way bullying is dealt with, leading to fewer complaints.
This programme helps schools and services comply with the Equality Act 2010. External validation of your practice can pinpoint ways to make it even better. Why not learn from other award winning schools?
