Aimed at KS2 students to help them take the lead on creating a future without bullying – using new technologies to promote positive communication rather than being held back by cyberbullying and focuses on bullying via the internet, social networks and mobile phones and how to tackle this form of bullying.
According to the NSPCC, one in three internet users is a child, and three-quarters of 12 to 15 year old have some kind of social media account. A quarter of those under 18 on social media have experienced something upsetting online. But the National Crime Prevention Council says those numbers are far higher, suggesting that a massive 43% of children have experienced online bullying.
Our Cyberbullying workshop helps your pupils to understand how this type of bullying is present across various forms of media. The drama role-play component of this workshop allows the participants to explore – in a safe environment – how to tackle and report cyberbullying.
By the end of this workshop your pupils will be able to explain what cyberbullying looks like. They will feel confident about what to do if cyberbullying happens to them or their friends.
