DfE research into effective anti-bullying strategies
As restorative practice partner with the Anti-Bullying Alliance, Restorative Thinking supports awareness-raising of the impact restorative practice has on both preventative and reactionary anti-bullying strategies.
This new research report from the DfE highlights qualitative research to understand anti-bullying practices schools have found effective.
These include approaches to tackling bullying generally and more specific types of bullying, for example:
- racial bullying
- special educational needs and disability (SEND) bullying
- lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) bullying
The report contains common themes found throughout the research and 7 case studies. It’s intended to be used as a resource by schools and other stakeholders looking for examples of anti-bullying practices. Restorative practice is a key feature in the final case study 7 from Hope School in Merseyside.
