The latest episode of Thrive’s Connected podcast is celebrating National Bullying Prevention Month. In this episode, we’re joined by Jo Warner, Assistant Director of Education on the Joint Education Team of the Durham and Newcastle Diocesan Boards of Education. Jo talks about the guidance that church schools receive around bullying and how the 106 schools she works with put this into practice. She also talks about the importance of taking a pro-active approach rather than simply responding to bullying incidents as they occur.
“If you’re only dealing with the tip of the iceberg and not looking below the surface at what you can do before something becomes an issue then it’s not effective,” she said.
