The programme which sits alongside 9 other innovative schemes to tackle bullying, backed with £4.4million of government investment, will enable 120,000 students across 300 schools to report incidents such as bullying, cyber bullying, or homophobic, transphobic and biphobic abuse.

Online reporting platform

At the core of the programme will be the tootoot online reporting platform which gives students and parents an easy and simple way to report all issues relating to bullying and cyberbullying.

To help pupils, parents and staff address the issues raised, the reporting
platform will be supplemented by resource hubs dedicated to staff, pupils and parents, and will help schools address the issues or concerns that may be raised through the reporting platform.

Our aim is to create a one- stop shop for bullying support for school staff, pupils and parent.
