Bullying

A safe space

Don’t let bullying stand in the way
of your child’s education

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.

We teach in an alternative classroom, where pupils attend live curriculum-based lessons online from the comfort of their own home. Here, we work to make our pupils feel safe, secure and included in each and every lesson. By eliminating the usual distractions and challenges faced in a typical classroom setting, your child can focus on learning.

Small class sizes
Focus on every child's needs

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 iGCSE 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.

If you have any questions about our approach to bullying, please get in touch.

In 2016, 1.5 million young people (50%) reported being bullied, 145,800 of whom were bullied on a daily basis. Unfortunately, school statistics on bullying are on the rise.

Our daughter had a difficult school experience, mostly because of bullying. It was heart breaking to watch our bright, bubbly and happy girl who loved learning turn into a withdrawn, sad one who could not cope.

We feel blessed to have stumbled upon My Online Schooling. We were initially sceptical as we weren’t sure whether our daughter would cope in a virtual classroom. We need not have worried. In no time at all, she was able to type, complete homework online, use PowerPoint and complete a Wiki project. The more we see, the more confident that it is setting the children up with skills they will need for the future, and more so than mainstream schools.

Far more important than her academic progress are the strides she made in her self-esteem. She loves getting up in the morning for school, and the amazing school trip to the Lake District was the highlight of her term. She is once again the happy, fun-loving child we know and love. We could not be more pleased.
