DfE research into effective anti-bullying strategies

Posted by on November 16, 2018 in Developments, Evaluation | 0 comments

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.
