Do you aim to:
- encourage children to explore situations that can lead to bullying?
- give pupils strategies for coping with bullies?
- help pupils to gain self-esteem and self-confidence?
- stimulate follow-up discussion and action?
Next Stage’s anti-bullying workshops have been delivered to over 1000 schoolchildren. Using role play, improvisation, forum theatre and topical references, Next Stage actors help pupils to explore in a safe and controlled environment the plight of both the bully and the bullied. We recommend a maximum group size of 30.
