Every organisation that works with children needs to have an anti-bullying policy statement, which sets out your organisation’s commitment to preventing and addressing bullying.
We've created this example anti-bullying policy statement, which you should tailor according to the context of your organisation. 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 conjunction with procedures that will 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.
