One of the main problems in our schools today is that Bullied students don’t report or are too scared to report the bullying. Well, here’s a solution.
Create A Bullying Incident Report Form – Not only for the students, but create a “Bullying Incident Report Form” for teachers and/or parents to fill out if their child has been a victim of a bullying incident.
Some schools already have this available. If so, make sure students, staff and parents know that it’s available. This gives your staff the information they need to take the appropriate action. If there isn’t one, create it.
To put it together simply create a form with the following fill-in-the-blank information:
- Name of Student
- Location of Incident
- Other Children Involved
- Description of the Incident
- Action Taken (for the teachers to fill out)
- Result (to be filled out by the teacher)
That’s it. A super simple way to get things in writing and get away from any misunderstandings or miscommunication.
Oh, and make sure to tell the students, parents and staff that it’s available (I know I already said that, but I thought I’d just say it again… just for fun).
That’s it for now. Take a look at all my other Bully Prevention Tips on my blog.
I appreciate your comments.
