A 2016 survey revealed that 50% of young people had been bullied in the last year – 1.5 million children – with almost a third of that number suffering daily. These figures don’t buck the trend. In fact, the stats are on the rise. If your child has been bullied, you’ll know that the impact goes well beyond the report card. It’s not only a barrier to their learning, but a blow to their self-esteem and mental well-being.
Of course, bullying is not new. Most schools take the issue very seriously, doing wonderful work to combat the problem. But we know that for some victims of bullying, things can become so difficult that their only option is to withdraw from school altogether. Online schooling offers a safe space for your child to continue their education within a positive and supportive learning environment.
At My Online Schooling, your child would be part of a class of no more than 20 pupils, ensuring their teacher has the time and space to focus on every child’s needs. We follow the English National Curriculum from Key-Stage 2 to International GCSE and A-Levels, with every child given the support to learn at their own pace and sit exams when they’re ready. And, if your child wishes to go back into a mainstream classroom, you can make sure they’re up to date with the curriculum and ready to slot back in with the minimum of fuss or hassle.
