Governor Introduction to the Addressing Bullying in Schools Act (Northern Ireland) 2016.
The initial school training for the Addressing Bullying in Schools Act is underway across the Education Authority for all grant aided primary, post primary and special schools. The Act introduces changes in how all schools and Boards of Governors respond to bullying incidents or complaints and in how they set and monitor the effectiveness of the school’s anti-bullying policies and practices.
The Education Authority has been working to ensure that staff, schools and governors understand and are taking steps to ensure they are meeting the new requirements of new the Data Protection Law.
