Olweus Bully Prevention Program
It is the mission of Penns Manor Elementary School to create a safe learning environment for all students. It is our belief that we can better our school and community through the implementation of the Olweus Anti-Bullying Prevention Program. We believe that our students will ultimately reflect a positive and compassionate attitude toward other students while building self-confidence and leadership skills within themselves.

What is Olweus:
The Olweus Program (pronounced Ol-VEY-us; the E sounds like a long A) is a comprehensive, school-wide program designed and evaluated for use in elementary, middle, junior high or high schools. The program’s goals are to reduce and prevent bullying problems among school children and to improve peer relations at school. The program has been found to reduce bullying among children, improve the social climate of classrooms, and reduce related antisocial behaviors, such as vandalism and truancy. Schools are also gathering data about OBPP implementation at the High School level. The Olweus Program has been implemented in more than a dozen countries around the world, and in thousands of schools in the United States.
