58% of children are worried about bullying at secondary school

posted in Education ● 30 Aug 2013

A shocking survey released by Beat Bullying reveals that 58% children are scared of attending secondary school due to bullying. 52% feel that bullying in secondary school is more severe than at primary school. The survey also astonishingly reveals that the classroom is the most common place for bullying to occur. Many schools offer a number of different channels to support victims of bullying, however cyber bullying is much more difficult to contend.  There has been much media coverage recently detailing cases of cyber bullying and more schools are putting procedures in place to help the victims. This reactive approach does not take into account that many will simply be too scared to tell an authoritative figure.

Redstor’s E-Safety service represents a proactive approach to addressing bullying and otherwise safeguarding children through monitoring activity on school devices. E-safety will detect specified keywords and will alert staff of any harmful comments or forbidden behaviour, even if the messages are not actually sent. This intelligent service gives teachers the power to demonstrate proactive duty of care to really help the victims and crack down on cyber bullying.
