What do we know about the prevalence of bullying in B&NES?

In June 2013 we surveyed children and young people in Years 4, 6, 8 and 10.  A total of 1217 primary pupils from 21 schools and 2617 secondary pupils from 11 secondary schools took part in the School Health Education Unit Survey which asked questions about health-related behaviour including bullying. Some 26% of primary pupils and 19% of secondary pupil surveyed said they’d been bullied at or near school in the last 12 months.  A total of 76% of primary pupils and 59% of secondary pupils said they thought their school takes bullying seriously.
