Best Practice

Utterly Global utilizes the best practices in bullying prevention, offering comprehensive research based programs and training.

 

Blueprint for Success

  • Examine the social environment and climate in your school or camp.  Get everyone “on board” to create a safe learning and social environment. Change the social norm to one where everyone is treated with respect, dignity and bullying is not tolerated.

  • Assess and measure.  Adults don't always estimate the prevalence of bullying accurately. It is important to survey the attitude, behaviors and climate of a school or camp. Many times administration, parents, teachers, students and staff perceive the school or camp differently. Everyone should be surveyed. Findings can help motivate adults to take action.  A starting date can serve as a baseline to measure change.

  • Obtain buy-in. Bullying prevention is not be the sole responsibility of one person, the school, parents, staff, students, campers or the community.  Bullying prevention is the job of EVERYONE.

  • Form a social action team or committee.  Evaluate survey findings. Choose an area in need.

  • Raise awareness, train and educate staff, children, parents, lunch aids, bus drivers and anyone who has contact with children.

  • Establish and enforce clear cut rules and protocol .Staff, children and parents need to know what is expected and the positive and negative consequences for their behavior. 

  • Increase supervision in “hot spots”. Establish an anonymous reporting system. Begin tracking and reporting all incidents or suspected incidents of bullying.

  • Spend time on bullying prevention with children.  Watch movies, read books, role play, discuss problems and solutions.

  • Implement a bullying prevention program/plan.

  • No end date.  Continue your efforts.  Continue to assess and evaluate what works.  Make changes as needed to your plan.
