Safe at School Anti-Bullying Survey 2017-18

To tackle bullying effectively it is crucial that the voices of children and young people are heard. Our Anti-Bullying survey has been running for over a decade. In the last 4 years over 60,000 children and young people have shared their views and experiences of bullying making it the largest of its kind in the country.

Any school or college can register to take part in the survey for free, click here to register.  Registration is not required if you are a KENT maintained school, free school or academy.

The reporting cost is £100. The report includes school specific analysis of how pupils perceive bullying and their school’s response; plus a tailored comparison of your data against our regional and national data-sets enabling you to benchmark your results. Many of the questions asked in the survey match several aspects of the current Ofsted inspection framework.

Reporting of individual school data is FREE for all KENT maintained schools, free schools and academies. Reporting of tailored comparison data against our regional and national data-sets costs £50. To register for a tailored report click here.

Participation and reporting is FREE for all schools currently registered on the Salus SAS Anti- Bullying Award Program. To find out more about the Award click here.

The main findings of the 2016-17 survey are that: 48.8% of primary and 50.9% of secondary school age children reported that they have been bullied; break-time and the playground are by far the most likely time and place for bullying to take place. Negative online behaviour is on the rise, 55.9% of secondary pupils have received negative or nasty comments about themselves online up from 33.3% in 2015/16. 31.4% of primary pupils have had nasty or negative comments posted about them online up from 25.8 in 2015/16; over 30% of primary age and a significant number of secondary age pupils do not know how to go about removing this type of online content.

As children and young people increase their digital presence the problem of negative online behaviour is getting bigger, the data suggests that the support and skills children and young people need to tackle negative online behavior, when it does occur, is not keeping pace with their online lives.online image 2online image
