Who could help prevent bullying?

This paper looks at the role of the School Board in a school's anti-bullying work. It suggests various ways in which a School Board could support this work including: discussing bullying at their meetings, organising workshops for parents on the topic, finding out about the local authority's policy on bullying, involving outside agencies such as the police. The paper also stresses the importance of a wide base of support in a school's fight against bullying. This includes all members of the school (teaching and non-teaching staff), the local authority, family and the wider community, including police, bus companies and community groups.
