Schools and youth settings play an important role in developing the skills young people need to develop, cope and thrive in today’s world. They are a constant in young peoples’ lives and should be a safe, consistent place for them to learn. But, with over half of the UK’s young people reporting they have been bullied, there is a crisis in our schools and youth settings.
With too much emphasis on academic achievement and exams, and not enough on a pupil’s emotional well-being, the education system is unbalanced. Yet, how can we expect a young person who is suffering from bullying to concentrate and flourish academically?
Bullying causes unimaginable distress to a person – anxiety, stress, depression. It affects their social and academic ability and has a major impact on their mental health.
