All children and young people have the right to be part of positive, professional and social communities.

No one needs to experience bullying. Children and young people are entitled to protection against a bad psychological teaching environment and deserve schooling without bullying (The Children´s Convention).

What does the school do in the daily preventive work:

  • We have parent representatives at all grade levels

  • We conduct regular surveys concerning the well-being of the pupils

  • We focus on having insight into the latest anti-bullying tools to prevent and combat bullying, online as well

  • We use Circle Time in the classes

  • We focus on developing respect, understanding and tolerance for each other on a daily basis

  • In the classes we use different anti-bullying tools which are also introduced to the parents at our meetings


The role of the parents:

  • The school expects the parents to take an active part in the children´s school life and work closely with the teachers concerning the well-being of the students

  • We encourage the parents in collaboration with the teachers to form play groups and the like and arrange for social gatherings.

We encourage parents to follow the 10 guidelines against bullying:

  1. Do not speak ill of your child's class mates – or their parents. It ruins your child's chances of building up a network of friends. Parents' attitude make an impact on the tolerance culture of the whole class. 

  2. Support your child in making as many different relations in the class as possible. It is a strength for the child to have more relations to build on. At the same time it minimizes the possibility of isolating class mates. 

  3. Put the spotlight on the “invisible” children in your child´s class. Children, who are never mentioned, never invited home to others. “Invisible” class mates can be isolated, bullied children who need to be part of a game or a play date. 

  4. Urge your child to defend a class mate who cannot defend herself/himself. It is especially the helping hand of a friend which breaks the isolation of a bullied child. 

  5. Prioritize birthday invitations from the class mates – this means making sure that your child attends all birthdays possible in the class.  It is a sign of respect to the birthday child to take the invitation seriously. Tell your child that birthdays are different and that this is the exciting part about being invited. The child with the low status will often be criticized for the content of the birthday party. Most children are unhappy if their family identity is challenged.. Different kinds of parties increase the excitement. 

  6. When you have a birthday party for your child, remember the social birthday policy: everyone, no one OR all girls/all boys. This will be seen as fair by most children. Selective birthday invitations show a lack of respect for the class as a community. To be left out of the group of invited children is very painful. 

  7. Prioritize social gatherings with the other parents in the class. Social gatherings amongst the parents rub off on the socializing amongst the students in the class. 

  8. Support the teachers who prioritize the social well -being of the class. 

  9. Teachers who take concrete initiatives to improve the social life in the class need the parents´ support so the project does not fail. 

  10. Use the class representatives and the school board in the work against bullying.

Class representatives and the school board can help make anti-bullying a top priority in the school.Source: “10 forældreråd om mobning fra “Grundbog mod mobning” af Helle Rabøl Hansen (Gyldendals Lærerbibliotek)”
