A freedom of Information disclosure about the number of children in UK schools that could be the subject of bullying.
Can the department provide details of the number of children there are currently in UK schools that could be the subject of bullying i.e. 5 to 15 years?
According to the Tellus 4 survey carried out by the department in the year 2009 to 2010, the number of children there are currently in UK schools that could be the subject of bullying is 28.8%.
The questions in the survey were asked of pupils in years 6, 8 and 10 as there are no other current sources of national figures on bullying for pupils below the age of 10 (year 6) in the UK.
