Drawing on the author's cutting-edge research this practical book helps teachers better understand the causes of bullying, gives them confidence to resolve nuanced cases, and provides them with the tools to develop pupil-led anti-bullying campaigns. This book delves into the complex nature of bullying at school in a clear and approachable way. It helps school staff understand the student's views and experiences of bullying, and how power imbalances and systemic inequalities can contribute to bullying relationships between pupils. The author provides evidence-based interventions that suggest ways teachers can develop knowledge and skills to resolve incidents. Key to this is a new approach to pupil-led interventions which allows staff to harness pupil voices to develop effective anti-bullying strategies. Included are resources and tools to help teachers set up these advisory groups and interventions, and train others to do the same. This is essential reading for teachers looking for a comprehensive and accessible guide to tackling bullying.
