New question introduced 2012- Percentage of Pupils Responding to ‘My school deals with bullying?’
Percentage of Pupils Responding to ‘If someone is unkind to me (or bullies me) there is an adult in school I can tell who will do something about it’
Key points - bullying Bullying continues to be widely reported in the ‘What do I Think?’ Survey, with 28% of Y2, 14% of Y6, 23% Y7 and 19% Y9 pupils answering that they been ‘bullied or picked on’ in school or the playground and similar but slightly lower numbers outside school. Whilst 88% Y2 pupils are confident there is always an adult they can rely on to intervene when they feel others are being unkind to them, this reduces as pupils progress through the schools to 77% in Y6, 60% in Y7 and 40% in Y9. By far the most common method of bullying is verbal The most common type of bullying for all year groups remains that in relation to looks All of the methods of bullying identified affect all year groups and require different strategies to counter them according to age group As pupils get older, cyber-bullying and subtle indirect forms of bullying become more commonly experienced.
The What Do I Think Survey 2013 The survey link has been sent to schools via Schools Communication x4 Schools have clearer IT instructions and hints and tips as to how best to support children Schools can use the results to help in planning – governors have a role to play in encouraging them to take part Significant messages around how helpful young people feel their education is in relation to healthy lifestyles – this needs to be addressed How can we make school more attractive to our Young Carers and Travellers?
