This animation ‘Bullying – Strategies for Staying Safe’ is one of 3 safeguarding animations developed by Families Feeling Safe and Dr Hayley Davis, lecturer in the sociology of childhood in the School of Education at the University of Leeds. Resources for working with this animation will be available in the new year.
Research from the Anti-Bullying Alliance in 2016 with over 13,000 pupils aged between 7 and 15 across 44 schools in the UK found 1 in 4 children reported they were bullied a lot or always. Children with disabilities or those with SEN were three times more likely to both be bullied and bully others (‘bully-victims’). To see their findings anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/tools-information/all-about-bullying/prevalence-and-impact/prevalence-bullying?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8Orkws-T4QIVzr_tCh0dVQ3BEAAYAiAAEgL9UPD_BwE
