2011 UK Education Department findings

2011 UK Education Department findings show that restorative approaches can offer some of the most effective ways forward for both preventing and addressing bullying in schools.

Researchers from Goldsmith College were commissioned to research the most widely used and effective strategies in schools for both preventing and addressing bullying behaviours. Their findings were published in the document:

F. Thompson and P.K. Smith (2011) The Use and Effectiveness of Anti-Bullying Strategies in Schools  Research Report DFE-RR098   Goldsmiths, University of London
