By providing teachers with a practical intervention program to prevent bullying in their schools, this book gives the reader tried and tested strategies to tackle a very challenging problem. Creating a safe school environment where pupils feel secure is increasingly difficult, but this book shows how to devise a strategy, put it into practice, measure its effectiveness and extend the good practice into the wider community. The involvement of young people is a key element of this process. With its roots firmly in practice, the book is based on a study of' common characteristics of schools that have successfully reduced bullying; case studies that show how change can be achieved; raising whole-school awareness of the problem; how to tackle bullying as a whole-school issue; involving the students and the student council; delivering in-service training to colleagues. Primary and secondary school teachers, the school management team, learning mentors, teaching assistants and governors will find the guidance clear and suggested approaches helpful.
