A recent survey commissioned by Nationwide in partnership with The Diana Award of 1,000 children ages 6-16 found that over three quarters of children (77%) believe bullying in school creates a negative impact on creating a society they want to be part of when they're older.
With the usual back to school period looming and feeling more different than ever before post lockdown and home-schooling; students, parents and teachers prepare for a very different start to the academic year. Research has shown that a third (34%) of children are more worried about returning to school than before lockdown, so we're committed to supporting students on their return.
On 28 September 2020, we’re also holding the ‘The Big Anti-Bullying Assembly’. It's a celebrity-packed virtual event, which will be beamed into primary school classrooms and homes across the UK, bringing together hundreds of thousands of children and empowering them to tackle bullying.
