The Equality and Human Rights Commission and the Anti-Bullying Alliance have worked together to develop some tips for schools and education authorities on how to reduce discriminatory bullying.
The guidance suggests schools and education authorities consider improvements in the following areas:
- creating a school culture that promotes the feeling of safety
- celebrating difference
- using language of diversity
- creating an inclusive environment for students
- empowering staff and students
It also provides tips on what to do when discriminatory bullying occurs, as well as links to further guidance and information.
