NSPCC - Stop, Speak Support
The key message for young people of Stop, Speak, Support is that when the banter turns bad, there are three things you can do to help. Stop and pause before reacting, speak to a trusted adult or friend, and support anyone being bullied.
For schools, teaching materials to support the campaign, as part of Anti-Bullying Week, have been developed and can be found on the Anti Bullying Alliance website.
The advice encourages parents to help children to be an upstander not a bystander when they witness bullying by using this code.
