They recognise the need to promote a pupil’s self-esteem, health and emotional well-being, along with helping them form and maintain fulfilling relationships based on respect for themselves and others.
Stuart and Safety Guide are now offering schools question and answer support sessions to further promote anti-bullying.
Four campaigns are being ran including ‘Road awareness, bullying and staying safe online’, ‘Bullying – victim or bully? Bullying stops with you’, ‘Child grooming’ and ‘Drugs and alcohol – The facts’.

Stuart decided to get involved with the campaign following his childhood experience of being bullied.
Stuart Maddox, 38, said: “I got involved with Safety Guide through my good mate Rob Reid as I strongly believe in what they’re trying to achieve with the anti-bullying among other subject that they are covering.
“Being a victim of bullying as a child due to living in a children’s home, I want to do all that is possible to help prevent this.”
You can order the Safety Guide books via the website.
