In addition, some Optional Interventions which were available would be supported by project resources. Here, we selected interventions which were available at the time, targeted to bullying, and suitable in a UK context. These fell broadly into three categories: curriculum-based strategies, intervening in bullying situations, and making changes to playgrounds and lunchbreaks. Headteachers were initially invited to the university for one whole day, in February 1991, for themselves and another school representative to work on a core framework of a whole-school policy on bullying; and to be introduced to the range of interventions available.
Using the comparable, age-equivalent samples from the first and second surveys, we selected certain items or composite measures which could be taken as indicators of success in tackling bullying. These are described below. Being Bullied Three items relating to perceived frequency of being bullied were included in this indicator: • the likelihood of being bullied oneself during the term; here, we combined all the responses ‘I haven’t been bullied at school this term’ in the questionnaire (seven items; two-point scale on each) and then calculated the mean number of responses as a percentage; • the frequency of being bullied oneself during the term (one item, fivepoint scale); • the number of children in the class who had been bullied (one item, sevenpoint scale).
2. Pupil, staff and parent questionnaires and/or interviews, usually related to specific interventions, are discussed in other chapters of this book. Additional general evidence of the effects of interventions was provided via the interim monitoring procedures. These were introduced initially to identify changes in behaviour relating to the playground interventions. However, it was soon apparent that they would be helpful as a general indicator of change and consequently all schools were encouraged to implement them.
