New Anti-bullying programme backed by DfE will help beat bullying

22 Feb 2017

Internet Matters in partnership with tootoot, and supported by the Department for Education, are inviting schools to take part in a pilot online service to report bullying and cyberbullying concerns.

The programme which sits alongside 9 other innovative schemes to tackle bullying, backed with £4.4million of government investment, will enable 120,000 students across 300 schools to report incidents such as bullying, cyber bullying or homophobic, transphobic and biphobic abuse.

Online reporting platform

At the core of the programme will be the award winning online reporting platform which gives students and parents an easy and simple way to report all issues relating to bullying and cyberbullying.

To help pupils, parents and staff address the issues raised; the reporting platform will be supplemented by resource hubs dedicated to staff, pupils and parents, and will help schools address the issues or concerns that may be raised through the reporting platform.

Our aim is to create a one- stop shop for bullying support for school staff, pupils and parent.

· Reporting platform and app with resources for students

· Resource hub and reporting platform for parents

· Safeguarding platform and resource hub for staff

Internet Matters and tootoot are inviting schools and Academies, both directly and via their Local authorities and Multi Academy Trusts, to register to join the 12 month programme, funded by the Department for Education.

There are 4 areas of 50 schools already registered to the programme and the programme is now recruiting in London. We currently have 16 primary and secondary schools within London registered on the programme and we have 34 funded places available on a first come first serve basis. Once 50 schools in London are registered we will then invite schools to a one day introduction workshop in May.
