Racist bullying behaviour is when someone repeatedly verbally, physically or indirectly targets another person based on their skin colour, or their actual or assumed culture, ethnicity, nationality or race.
Sexual bullying behaviour is when someone repeatedly crosses another person’s boundaries with unwanted sexual contact, comments or attention.
This is often driven by sexism, homophobia and perceived gender norms, and disproportionately affects girls.
Open to all trained Anti-Bullying Ambassadors and supporting the RSE Curriculum, your students will attend a FREE additional online, half-day training session delivered by one of our anti-bullying experts.
After the session, we offer students and educators 12 months of tailored support to develop exciting campaigns that will create real impact in your school, community and beyond.
Schools will have the opportunity to earn the Respect Badge* by running campaigns and initiatives to tackle racist and/or sexual bullying behaviour in school.
* Even if your students have already achieved the Respect Badge, students will learn how to tackle racist/sexual bullying behaviour in their school and build on their existing knowledge as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.

Yes! Training sessions have been designed with the RSE Curriculum in mind to ensure key topics are addressed. As such, topics include learning about ‘positive relationships’, including ‘friendships’ and ‘relationships with other children and with adults’, as well as ‘how to treat others with kindness, consideration and respect’ and more.
We understand conversations around race and sex can sometimes be difficult for young people and educators. However, we also know that increasing numbers of young people are experiencing racist or sexual bullying behaviour at school. This training aims to provide a safe and non-judgemental space in which to address these topics. Training is delivered by an anti-bullying expert who will facilitate youth-led conversations and activities. Pupil wellbeing is at the heart of all that we do. We provide pre and post-session advice and guidance and a dedicated anti-bullying team who are on hand to answer any queries you may have.
Yes, our training sessions are split by primary/secondary school level, with differentiated activites, definitions and discussions.
The anti-racist bullying behaviour training session equips students to tackle racist bullying behaviour, such as the use of slurs or racial stereotyping, by increasing students’ understanding of the issue and inspire ideas for positive action to address it.
The anti-sexual bullying training addresses bullying with a sexual element, which might include sexual comments, taunts or threats, non-consensual contact, upskirting, sharing of sexual imagery/videos, games with a sexual element and pressure to conform to gender norms.
All of the above are delivered through engaging, fun and age-appropriate activities.
