New Anti-Bullying Guidance for CofE Schools

The Church of England has published new anti-bullying guidance for use in its 4,700 Church schools.

The document, entitled ‘Guidance for preventing and tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying’ is the first of a new suite of resources and will come into effect from September 2024 after a consultation period. This suite, named ‘Flourishing for All: Anti-bullying guidance for Church of England schools,’ will expand with additional sections in the coming months.

Initially this will be a draft for consultation, and feedback is particularly sought from Church school leaders and staff, Diocesan Boards of Education, churches and faith groups working with schools, as well as parents and other interested parties. Free webinars to introduce the guidance will be held on:

These sessions are primarily aimed at school leaders, staff and governors.
