Wow! What a busy year for tootoot! We haven’t stopped growing, developing and spreading the anti-bullying message around the world and we certainly don’t plan to stop any time soon! The tootoot journey has only just begun with new schools joining us every single day, all wanting to help protect their pupils and give these children a voice. A recent 2016 study by Ditch The Label found that 1.5 million young people (50%) have been bullied within the last year, with 19% of these getting bullied every day. It’s statistics like these that keep us motivated to work hard & make sure every pupil is given the opportunity to talk about their worries via the tootoot platform. Let’s have a quick recap of some of my favourite parts of tootoot’s 2016…

2016 saw the tootoot team almost doubling with new arrivals in our Support team along with the Development team too. It’s been hard work from everyone all around, and it’s great to see it paying off with all the exciting things that have happened so far, along with fantastic opportunities coming up in 2017.

With Anti Bullying Week 2016 just around the corner, we wanted to celebrate Anti Bullying Week with our schools by launching and sharing tootoot’s new pupil led launch video!

This years theme is POWER FOR GOOD. We wanted to empower students in schools across the country to speak up against bullying and cyberbullying. The video, developed in partnership with Tweedmouth Middle School and Sky Vantage Productions, showcases students from years 4 to 8 explaining the importance of telling someone if they are being bullied or cyber bullied in school or at home.

We’re pleased to announce that tootoot’s online platform, which provides 24-hour support to young people who are victims of bullying or online abuse, will be rolled out to hundreds of schools thanks to the support of a £4.4million government fund.

Cyberbullying gives bullies the cover of anonymity but tootoot’s app counteracts this by allowing children to report bullying incidents anonymously themselves. They can screenshot abusive messages or even take photographs of bullies in action, then send them via the app. The reports will then be read by staff at the child’s school, but no one else.

We’re pleased to announce the first Pupil Voice Week running from 26th – 30th September 2016.

Following the success of tootoot’s first year we are launching the first Pupil Voice Week with the theme ‘It’s Good to Talk!’. The week aims to highlight the importance of talking about bullying and providing all pupils with a safe and accessible way to report their concerns.

Pupil Voice Week calls upon pupils, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, councils, companies and policy makers, to join together and explore ways that we can empower pupils, giving them the knowledge and tools they need to feel confident to talk about their concerns.

As the summer term has come to an end we have had a chance to reflect on how far we have come and what a fantastic year it has been for tootoot!

We have had a very busy year and reached many exciting milestones. Tootoot are currently providing over 200,000 students with a voice and assisting over 9,000 members of staff in recording and reporting safeguarding issues in 550 schools across the UK and internationally. In the last 12 months tootoot has spread its wings and is now in schools as far afield as Nepal, Hong Kong, Russia and New Zealand.

Tootoot is proud to have worked alongside many local authorities, including South Tyneside, Derby, Wigan, Rochdale, Salford, Broadland and Middlesbrough, all of whom have seen the benefit of tootoot to their schools and orchestrated its roll out in their respective areas. Tootoot has also been rolled out among all 38 Cognita schools after a highly successful two-day workshop, with all schools in the trust having attended.
