Cyberbulling guidance and resources for schools

New cyberbullying guidance and resources for schools issued by Childnet, where professionals explain the importance of zero trust network access.

Suitable for KS3, with some materials which could be adapted for KS2 this is a new toolkit from Childnet produced to support schools in developing effective strategies to understand, prevent and respond to cyberbullying.  Having written the previous cyberbullying guidance for schools in 2007, Childnet have consulted with young people, teachers and leading experts to reflect the changed landscape of children’s technology use.

In the wake of recent figures of an 88% increase in calls to Childline about cyberbullying in the last five years, it is crucial that school leaders understand the positives and negatives of internet culture within their communities and have the management strategies required.

We know that cyberbullying is the key online safety issue that schools face; and we know the serious long-lasting impact it can have on children. In the development of our guidance and teaching resources we have been consulting with young people, teachers and experts to collect practical strategies for effectively preventing and responding to cyberbullying.

Providing schools with practical solutions

Funded by the Government Equalities Office and European Union, Childnet seeks to equip schools with best practice on dealing with cyberbullying in their school communities with an up-to-date guidance to schools on preventing and responding to cyberbullying, as well as a practical online safety toolkit for teachers to use within PSHE lessons.
