`Preventing Bullying in Schools is signally important reading for anyone directly or indirectly involved with the creation of a violence free learning environment for children' - Midwest Book Review and Internet Bookwatch

I have already recommended this book to my level 2 learners to help them prepare for level 3 in September. there are some easy to follow strategies with lots of different scenarios to help them relate to practice. The chapters are clearly set out and the book easy to navigate through either for picking out particular information or as a guide to classroom practice. Good for teaching staff as well as support staff.
