According to Beat Bullying around 70% of children are bullied and nationally 20 children a year commit suicide because of it. Bullying is such a big problem the Government is drawing up plans to tackle it. Highfield Middle School, from Prudhoe, in Northumberland, could help shape those plans.
The school's anti-bullying project is managed and operated by the pupils themselves. Many of them have been the victims of bullies in the past. It's won the prestigious Diana Award for the work it's done. Tomorrow those involved will have an audience with the Prime Minister.
