This guidance was produced jointly by the Council for Disabled Children and Young Voice working in partnership with the Anti-Bullying Alliance, with input from a very wide group of contributors, such as schools, teachers, unions, specialist organisations (e.g. National Autistic Society) etc. It provides very comprehensive guidance to help deal with bullying of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, who can quite often be bullying victims. There are sections on Prevention: Developing a whole-school approach to anti-bullying; Where and when does bullying occur?; Addressing a culture of discrimination; Planning and reviewing the policy – including learners with SEN and disabilities; Rewarding Positive behaviour; and Responding to Bullying - actions and afterward e.g sanctions; Different methods used in schools; Actions after bullying. There are also some useful resources such as journal articles and an appendix on 'Legal Duties and Guidance - what this means for your school'.
