In the UK, a reported 22% of children and young people claim to have been the target of cyberbullying making this one of the most important new areas of behavior to understand and to equip schools, carers and young people with the ability to respond.

In 2007, Childnet was commissioned by the Department for Children, Schools and Families to produce advice and guidance for schools on preventing and responding to cyberbullying. Lead by Will Gardner and Josie Fraser, Childnet worked in close consultation with a wide range of sectors including children and young people, schools, industry, law enforcement, professional bodies, parent groups and child welfare organisations.

    SAFE TO LEARN: EMBEDDING ANTI-BULLYING WORK IN SCHOOLS

    As more and more schools are having to respond to the growing challenge of cyberbullying, it is vital that schools understand the issue, know how to prevent and respond to incidents, and are updated on the legal issues surrounding this challenging subject.

    The DCSF has worked with children’s charity Childnet International to provide this guidance, which forms part of the anti-bullying guidance Safe to Learn: Embedding Anti-Bullying Work in Schools. You will be able to find important information and clear advice on the subject, and review how your school takes action.

    Quote from a pupil: “I felt that no-one understood what I was going through. I didn’t know who was sending me these messages, and I felt powerless to know what to do.”

    Quote from a parent: “Having my daughter show me text messages from nearly everyone in her class all saying derogatory things about her was devastating.”

    Quote from a staff member: “The accusation about me which the students put on their website was horrendous. Within hours it seemed that the whole school had read this message.”

    This guidance was developed for the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) by Childnet International and in consultation with the DCSF Cyberbullying Taskforce, on which representatives of the following organisations sit (in alphabetical order):
