ABQM-UK is a national and international  award that challenges schools and academies that follow the English or Welsh curriculum to demonstrate their effectiveness in anti-bullying and the prevention of harassment


It endorses the belief that the safety, mental health and wellbeing of everyone are essential elements of learning, development and achievement.


School communities that gain the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards can show that:


Children and young people come to school without the fear of being bullied or harassed


Staff members respond to all aspects of bullying behaviour and harassment with confidence


Families are confident that they know who to approach about bullying and harassment and that it will be dealt with efficiently and effectively.
