Leicester City Council is proud to be one of few Local Authorities that is able to offer its schools and their students an electronic anti-bullying system. This new system is called Text Someone and it allows children and their families to report incidents of bullying in a number of ways
Face to Face with a member of school staff - this method will enable schools to begin investigating an incident immediately.
Online - via a electronic form [An e-mail address is required for this reporting method] - please click on this hyper link

Once you have selected the appropriate school, click submit and then fill out the online form.
