Estyn: Challenge tackling huge rise in cyber bullying

Too many school pupils are still suffering from bullying, Wales education watchdog is warning.

Estyn says there needs to be greater support for 'at risk' groups who are targeted because of their sexuality, ethnicity, religion or disability.

Education inspectors have also drawn up an anti-bullying checklist for schools.

The report found common weaknesses across schools when it came to bullying, from recording incidents to consulting pupils on the issue.

The author of the report Jane Rees said cyber bullying was growing and had created new forms of bullying that are unfamiliar to some staff.
