Minister Foley announces publication of the Bí Cineálta Procedures to Prevent and Address Bullying Behaviour for Schools

19 June 2024

Minister for Education Norma Foley TD today launched the ‘Bí Cineálta procedures to prevent and address bullying behaviour for primary, post-primary and special schools’.

These ‘Bí Cineálta’ (‘Be Kind’) procedures were developed in collaboration with the education partners and are heavily informed by the views of children and young people, parents, school staff, board of management members and the wider education community.

The ‘Bí Cineálta’ procedures are centred on a child rights-based approach and support a partnership approach where all members of the school community work together to prevent and address bullying behaviour. The procedures have been updated to take account of gender identity bullying, cyberbullying, racist bullying, sexist bullying, and sexual harassment. They support schools to develop clear strategies to prevent and address these bullying behaviours.
