Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills

School Bullying and the Impact on Mental Health: Discussion (Resumed)

Ms Anne Murray:

I will come in on the FUSE programme. The Department has been supporting the FUSE programme for three years and it is a successful programme, as the Senator has pointed out. The aim of it is capacity building within schools. We support that approach and will continue to support the DCU anti-bullying centre in the future. We have some information about the efficacy of FUSE so far.

The attitudes of students to online safety are also positive following the FUSE programme engagement and when they have been asked about the programme, they have a very positive outlook on it.
