This workshop focuses on the responsibility of everyone inside and outside the school community to work together to beat bullying.
A report by the Anti-Bullying Alliance highlights that a bystander is “a person who does not become actively involved in a situation where someone else requires help”.
Our Taking Action Together workshop helps all the children to understand the different types of bystander and what actions we all need to take to avoid being a bystander to bullying. The drama role-play component of this workshop allows the participants to explore – in a safe environment – non-bystander behaviour and encourages the reporting bullying. If your school has a particular reporting policy and procedure this can be included in the workshop as a reminder to your pupils.
By the end of this workshop all the children will be able to explain what a bystander is and the different types of bystander. They will feel confident about what to do if bullying happens to them or their friends.
