Short survey on bullying of adults in schools

Discussion in 'Health and wellbeing' started by margaretpritchard, May 31, 2012.

  1. Hi everyone.

    Having experienced bullying as a teacher myself, and
    having heard many stories from others, I decided to put together a
    short survey on bullying in the school workplace. It's only ten
    questions long and shouldn't take much time. I'm interested
    particularly in a) the effects of bullying on staff, and b)
    legal/union support - what support, if any, has been received by staff
    experiencing bullying, how effective it was, and what, if any,
    information was given to you during your teacher training about your
    legal rights at work.

    So far, 200 people have filled in this
    survey, which is incredible. I'm hoping to get about 500 responses, and
    then I'll take the results to my MP, to my local NUT and NASUWT
    chapters, to a counselling centre I'm training with, and, possibly, to
    the press.

    The link is here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/75NRY6L and the survey is completely anonymous - I will have no way of knowing who gave which answers.

    Thank you very much for your time and for sharing your experiences.

    Sincerely,
    Margaret Pritchard Houston

  3. Hello Margaret
    Thanks for this opportunity to share my experience of being bullied. I too left the profession as a result and would never go back. Good luck with your plan to publicise this dreadful aspect of education.

  5. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to be involved in this survey. Bullying led me to leaving a job/school I loved and ending up in a job which I am about to loose and which is probably, due to my age and 'mental' state, going to lead to the dole queue! My abuser is now SLT and continues to do very well. Great eh?
