Wiltshire’s young people are standing together against bullying. They have come together to launch an anti-bullying charter which encourages everyone to take responsibility for bullying behaviour and to work together to tackle the causes and effects of bullying.
Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services said, ‘This charter is a clear response and action plan to recognise bullying and how it can be prevented. I would like to congratulate the young people on creating this key work which sets out very clearly how behaviours and working together can stamp out a problem which can have a devastating impact on people’s lives not only at schools but in the future’.
Wiltshire Council works on a number of anti-bullying programmes, including partnering with the national Anti-Bulling Alliance and has encouraged a number of Wiltshire schools to become SEN Disability Champions tackling bullying together.
