Author and trainer
Homophobic bullying; bullying arising from race, religion or colour; bullying based on a medical condition or appearance; and bullying due to SEN or disabilities can all be considered as prejudice-based bullying. Bullying of any kind causes misery for pupils and can have a severe impact on their school experience. Ofsted’s 2012 report ‘No place for bullying’ identified that staff felt least confident in tackling prejudice-based language.
This course will ensure that:
- all staff understand what prejudice-based bullying is and how it impacts on young people
- staff and pupils are supported by a whole-school approach, with consistent policies and practice
- staff are equipped with strategies for dealing with prejudice-based bullying incidents.
Based around case studies and dilemmas, each unit offers the opportunity for discussion and exploration of key issues.
