What is the ISPCC’s Shield Programme?
The Shield Programme is how the ISPCC supports communities, school and clubs to tackle and prevent bullying. In 2014, more than 8,000 children contacted the ISPCC about bullying.  That’s 23 children per day - almost an entire average sized classroom. At the ISPCC, we listen to children.  We know from children the impact that bullying has on their lives, on their self-esteem, on their ability to grow. 
 
The ISPCC has developed a range of resources, providing children and young people with the necessary coping skills to deal with and protect themselves from bullying. Shield has four key elements
  • Shield My School Tool/Shield my Club Tool– over 200 signed up to date 
  • Shield Youth Award – anti-bullying themed competition for students 
  • Standing Up Online Form – an anti-bullying resource for your website
  • Shield Flag– gain recognition for your work against bullying
