Description

In the UK, a reported 22% of children and young people claim to have been the target of cyberbullying making this one of the most important new areas of behavior to understand and to equip schools, carers and young people with the ability to respond.

In 2007, Childnet was commissioned by the Department for Children, Schools and Families to produce advice and guidance for schools on preventing and responding to cyberbullying. Lead by Will Gardner and Josie Fraser, Childnet worked in close consultation with a wide range of sectors including children and young people, schools, industry, law enforcement, professional bodies, parent groups and child welfare organisations.

The MSN cyberbullying report (20 06) found that 11 per cent of UK teens had experienced cyberbullying. Noret and River's four-year study on bullying (2007) found that 15 per cent of the 11,227 children surveyed had received nasty or aggressive texts and emails, and demonstrated a year-on-year increase in the number of children who are being bullied using new technology. Research conducted as part of the DCSF cyberbullying information campaign found that 34 per cent of 12— to 15-year-olds reported having been cyberbullied.
