Teaching assistants and bullying

ABA has written a guide based on the views of children and young people, who receive support from teaching assistants, about bullying. It is designed to give teaching assistants advice on preventing bullying of disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs (SEN).

This guide discusses young people’s views on

  • good support from TAs

  • bullying experienced by children and young people who receive TA support in schools

  • what can be done to prevent bullying for children and young people who receive TA support in school

You can find the guide at the bottom of this page.

One young person told us:

Inclusion is important because if you’re excluded from the rest of the group it marks you as the odd one out, so you’re more of a target for bullies

There are lots and lots of further resources on this website to support you as teaching assistants. ABA also has free online training available and you’re very welcome to complete this. Access the free CPD online training here.
