Cineáltas: Action Plan on Bullying provides a collective vision and clear roadmap for how the whole education community and society can work together to prevent and address bullying in our schools. The plan builds on the achievements and ambition of the previous Action Plan on Bullying 2013 and on the work undertaken in recent years to ensure that our schools are safe and happy places for all our children and young people. Cineáltas: Action Plan on Bullying has drawn on the Wellbeing Policy Statement and Framework for Practice 2019, UNESCO’s Whole Education Approach, as well as national and international research and best practice to develop a robust strategy that places our children and young people at the centre of our school community and at the centre of national education strategy and policy development. The plan has been developed following a wide ranging and extensive consultation process with children and young people, parents, school staff, education partners and the wider education community. The implementation of the actions in this action plan will greatly enhance the work that we already do to ensure that all the children and young people who attend our schools are kept safe from harm and that the wellbeing of our children and young people is at the forefront of everything that we do.
