This document is for adults looking to support young people who are experiencing, or who are at risk of experiencing cyber bullying.
We refer to the Bullying UK website information regularly as it is a thorough and helpful source of information.
Through our work we have gained an understanding about the various challenges and difficulties children face online.
Technology evolves at a fast pace, young people are mostly ahead of adults when it comes to operating and understanding new devices and their varying applications.
The internet is never going to be a completely safe place, no matter how many web pages are shut down or made illegal – it would be impossible to ensure that all dangers are completely eradicated.
Therefore our method is to focus on the children’s understanding, resilience and awareness to help them stay safe and use the internet in a positive and productive way. The skills learnt cover cyber bullying and anti-bullying for key stages KS1, KS2 and KS3.
