Guideline for Teachers


8. Designing or Selecting Protocols of Action


To establish protocols of action it is necessary to clarify the responsibilities of each of the educators and the steps to be followed in a specific case of bullying. Although it is not common, in some places the educational administration provides with a specific protocol. In this case, it would be important that all of the teachers were familiar with it. However, where such a protocol is not provided, it is important that the teachers reflect on the procedure to follow further to the detection of a bullying event. The steps to be followed would be:

  • To review the prospective existence of a bullying protocol in the area
  • In case of its existence, analyze and make it known among all of the teachers. To perform a simulation is clearly recommended
  • In case there is no such protocol, look for existing protocols, choose the one that is considered as the most suitable, or plan a protocol yourself starting from the existing ones. Analyze the definitive protocol and make it known among all of the teachers. In this case, to perform a simulation is also recommended
