In a recent survey, 40% of teenagers said that they had suffered some type of ‘online abuse’ and they felt that cyberbullying would continue to get worse as technology developed. This course will look at the problems that cyberbullying causes in schools and the methods that the perpetrators use to target their victims. It will also examine how schools can take a ‘whole school’ approach through policies, the curriculum and national initiatives such as the Cybermentors scheme to tackle the issue. The course will enable delegates to:
- Embed a cyberbullying policy into their schools existing anti-bullying and behaviour policy.
- Choose curriculum resources to fit in with their PHSE, Citizenship, IT schemes of work.
- Enable delegates to train other staff on issues related to cyberbulling.
- Look at how national schemes can have a positive impact in their school.
