Every organisation that works with children in the UK needs to have an anti-bullying policy statement, which sets out the organisation’s commitment to preventing and responding to bullying.
We've created this example anti-bullying policy statement, which you should tailor according to your organisation and your activities with children. It covers the key topics you need to consider and gives examples of some of the supporting documents you need to put in place.
This example anti-bullying policy statement should be used in alongside other organisational policies and procedures to help you respond to bullying effectively.
Our information about preventing bullying will help you develop clear procedures for responding to any bullying incidents.
Anti-bullying policies and procedures should form part of your wider safeguarding and child protection work.
