October marks National Bullying Prevention Month, a campaign founded in 2006 by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. Below are five strategies to prevent bullying in schools: 

  1. Create policies and rules– schools should establish and enforce clear school rules and policies so students know what is expected of them and how they should treat others. 
  2. Create a reporting system– Students should feel able to report bullying when it occurs, so staff can act on it.
  3. Reward students- Reward and praise the students who show acts of kindness, thoughtfulness and respect.
  4. Educate about bullying prevention month- do activities in lesson time to educate the children on bullying. For more ideas, view PACER’s classroom tool kits and activities to help address bullying through education, engagement and peer interaction. 
  5. Action- Schools should tackle bullying at the earliest opportunity and not allow it to escalate.
