The Schools Minister Vernon Coaker has today launched a DVD for pupils, along with resource pack for schools, to help them tackle bullying of young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

The DVD 'Make Them Go Away' is aimed at raising awareness among children, aged seven to 14, of their peers with SEN and disabilities, and includes messages about how bullying affects their lives.

To appeal to the young audience the film also includes a supportive comment from Arsenal Football Club Captain Cesc Fabregas that having a disability should not stop young people achieving what they want.

The resource pack will be available to all primary and secondary schools in hard copy and online. This will be advertised to schools through an email from the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
