Make a noise
Internet Matters (not-for-profit organisation helping to keep children safe online) and Tootoot (a mobile-friendly safeguarding platform) are working together to beat bullying through the Make a noise programme, supported by the Department for Education. The programme gives students, parents and teachers a combined resource hub and reporting platform to create a one-stop shop for bullying support.
They have invited schools to take part in a 12 month Make a noise pilot where they provide the school with a free online service which allows children to report bullying to they can respond quickly.
