Preventing Prejudice-Based Bullying: Boost staff confidence to tackle unacceptable behaviour and language provides four training sessions to enable all staff to take a proactive approach to tackling prejudice-based bullying in all its forms.
Prejudice-based bullying is endemic in British schools and has a profoundly damaging impact on young people’s school experience. And yet the majority of teachers have had no training in how to manage incidents of prejudice-based bullying, such as homophobic bullying or bullying of pupils with SEN, and lack confidence in knowing what to do. Is your school fulfilling its legal obligation to protect all pupils from bullying? Do staff understand the consequences of allowing bullying to go unchallenged? And more crucially do they act decisively and consistently when an incident occurs?
The training pack will ensure that the leadership team and all staff:
understand what prejudice-based bullying is and how it impacts on young people
are supported by a whole-school approach, with consistent policies and practice are confident in tackling prejudicial language, including usage on social networks
are equipped to deal with persistent prejudice-based bullying
can practise a range of strategies to manage various incidents which may occur.
