Cineáltas: Action Plan on Bullying is Ireland’s whole education approach to preventing and addressing bullying in schools. It has drawn on the Wellbeing Policy Statement and Framework for Practice 2019, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s (UNESCO) whole education approach, as well as national and international research and best practice to develop a robust strategy that places the student at the centre of the school community and at the centre of national education strategy and policy development. Cineáltas: Action Plan on Bullying contains 61 actions that are aimed at helping us all to work together towards a diverse, inclusive Irish society, free from bullying in all its forms and where individual difference is valued, nurtured and celebrated and where all our children and young people can feel happy and safe in our schools. This Implementation Plan demonstrates the Department’s commitment to implementing each of the 61 actions in Cineáltas: Action Plan on Bullying in the next 5 years.
