Taking a stand against bullying

‘Boards Against Bullying’ is about highlighting the ways school governors can tackle bullying by driving strategic and cultural change in their schools. To help us achieve our mission, we’ve teamed up with anti-bullying charity Kidscape.

Throughout November, we’ll work with Kidscape to introduce existing and prospective school governors to a range of issues, including online bullying and common reasons behind bullying behaviours. We’ll also look at the practical steps school governors can take to stop bullying and improve pupils’ lives for the better.

You have the power to make a difference in your community. Volunteer to become a school governor today and we’ll walk you through the application process.
