Schools have a duty to care for pupils and that duty includes the responsibility to reduce the frequency of bullying and to respond appropriately with a safe intervention when it has happened.

Occasionally, a pupil or ex-pupil might, looking back on a time of unhappiness and school failure, choose to prosecute the school or the LEA for failing to deal effectively with bullying.

Recognizing this responsibility, Bristol City Council has commissioned a programme to support schools in drawing up and implementing a safe policy. This video and accompanying booklet comprehensively illustrate the necessary elements of the policy and include views on racist and homophobic bullying, record-keeping and an expert opinion on litigation.
