Leicestershire County Council has presented the ‘Beyond Bullying Award’ in recognition of the anti-bullying work that schools have done throughout the year.
The schools have been supported by the county anti-bullying team to share and develop best practice.
Since the award was launched six years ago, more than 100 schools across Leicestershire have received the accreditation.
This year sees a change in the award structure with the introduction of Bronze, Silver and Gold standards to support schools to develop their anti-bullying work.
Now in its sixth year, the Beyond Bullying Award celebrates schools across Leicestershire working hard to prevent and tackle bullying.
“Massive congratulations to all the schools achieving the awards this year. We hope to see all schools continue to progress to succeed in their goal of creating environments where the whole school community feel safe and welcome.Person:Councillor Ivan Ould, cabinet member for children and families
