Free Online Anti-Bullying Tool for parents and carers

The Anti-Bullying Alliance have launched their new free Online Anti-Bullying Information Tool for parents and carers. The tool is interactive and designed to give parents and carers information about bullying. The tool will help parents if they:

  • are concerned that their child may be vulnerable to bullying at school.
  • are worried that their child might be being bullied.
  • are aware that their child is being bullied.
  • think or know that their child is bullying others.
  • just want to browse.

You can access this free resource at: http://anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/advice/parents-carers/anti-bullying-tool-for-parents/

However, for us with Matthew this did not appear to be the case.

Matthew's class teacher made an appointment with me to go into school so she could talk to me about the process – what to expect, how to prepare, who might be there and how Matthew would prepared. She gave me a manual to look through over the Easter holidays and then I started my own preparation.
