What we're doing about bullying

Bullying affects a large number of children and young people and is the most prevalent ill-treatment of all abuses to children.

Salford aims to work in partnership with schools to support them to adopt Emotional Friendly Schools status and create a whole school approach to tackling issues like bullying and wider emotional health issues.

Annual resilience survey

Each November, we offer an opportunity to our schools and other settings to ask our children and young people in years 4, 8 and 12 about aspects of how resilient they feel and this is used by schools to support their evidence for their Emotionally Friendly Schools award application..

Learning resources

As part of the national Anti-Bullying week usually in November, schools are encouraged to make use of the campaign materials and resources to address bullying.
