Being Part and Parcel of the School

  • Bullying Policies In Schools
  • Northern Ireland


This research shows that the individual schools vary enormously in the way in which they develop and implement anti-bullying policies. While there were some examples of really excellent practice in devising and applying anti-bullying policies and in involving pupils in this, the general picture is of very limited participation of pupils. This seems to derive from the absence of any culture of pupil participation in policy making within schools. The interviews and discussions with pupils suggest that most have no sense of involvement in the way in which their school is run.
