New advice on cyberbullying

DCSF logoThe Department for Children, Schools and Families has issued new advice on the issue of bullying and cyberbullying in particular.

The full guidance for teachers Safe to Learn: embedding anti-bullying work in schools, is available from the TeacherNet website, as part of their bullying subsite and includes the official policy documents, guidance on different forms of bullying and related publications.

Cyberbullying is also the topic of a new part of the DirectGov website which is aimed at those on the receiving end of such behaviour. Bill Thompson, a technology expert who writes for the BBC News website, welcomes the new advice, but wonders how easy it will be to put it into practice.

Intute: Social Sciences features more resources on the issue of bullying.
