The Anti-Bullying Procedures for Primary and Post-Primary Schools in Ireland: What has been achieved and what needs to be done?
Optional Fields
policy, school bullying
Involvement in bullying can impact on a child’s right to a safe learning environment, negatively influencing a their social and emotional development. To reduce and prevent bullying behaviours in Irish schools, the Department of Education and Skills implemented the Anti-Bullying Procedures for Primary and Post-Primary schools in 2013. This paper evaluates the effectiveness of these Procedures for best practice in schools, potential impacts on pupils, staff and the wider school community. Considering the principles of best practice, and recent research on bullying in Ireland, we make recommendations for further supports at policy level to create effective and sustainable change on this important topic.
