Leicestershire County Council has been successfully working with schools for over 10 years in supporting them to achieve our 'Beyond Bullying' award. This accreditation is a great way for schools to demonstrate and gain recognition for the positive and proactive work they do around preventing and tackling bullying and creating a happy, inclusive school environment for young people.
The award process takes an academic year to complete (September to June) and schools taking part are required to collate evidence around 6 different areas, for example, staff professional development, pupil voice, leadership and policy development). Each school will work closely with a member of the Anti-Bullying Team during the year and will receive support and guidance on completing the process.
Schools can choose whether to aim for bronze, silver or gold standard, depending on where they feel they are with their practice and where they feel they can realistically aim within that year.
When awarded with the Beyond Bullying Award, your school will receive:
- A Beyond Bullying Certificate (digital copy)
- Use of the Beyond Bullying logo (bronze, silver or gold) for 3 years
- Feedback and action points to take forward for when it's time to renew.
Registration for 2022-23 is now full, but if you would like more information, please see the flyer for this year and contact us if you would like to express an interest for next year.
