What is FUSE Primary?

FUSE Primary is an anti-bullying and online safety programme developed by the Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre in DCU, supported by Social Innovation Fund Ireland. The programme launched in September 2020 across Ireland.

FUSE Primary is grounded in Irish and international best practice research, consisting of a series of workshops and resources aimed at Primary School Students between the ages of 9 and 11. The Programme takes a whole-school approach, which allows it to involve parents, teachers and school staff of learners in primary schools across Ireland.

The ethos of FUSE is to always place young people at the centre of our programmes. FUSE Primary, therefore, aims to support and empower young people to find solutions and initiatives themselves; to feel confident in their ability to tackle bullying and protect themselves online i.e. online safety.

FUSE Primary is also a research and evaluation programme, enabling schools to identify areas of improvement and self-evaluation. The curriculum focuses on empowering students to develop initiatives in their schools which tackle bullying and raise awareness of online safety.

This is the first phase of the programme following an investment in the initiative by Rethink Ireland Social Innovation Fund Ireland in the last year.
