Anti-Bullying in Schools

Main Details

Help for Parents

From time to time all children experience difficulties of one kind or another and sometimes you may be concerned about changes in your child. These may be because of a bullying issue but could be due to other things such as moving house.

What is bullying behaviour?

Let's be clear about bullying behaviour

Bullying is:

  • Repeated behaviour
  • It hurts and creates fear
  • It can include name calling, intimidation, exclusion from a group, extortion or physical attack

It is not:

  • Hurting someone accidentally
  • A one-off fight between equals
  • A 'falling-out' between friends
  • Borrowing things and forgetting to return them

It helps to talk to your child about what bullying is and is not.
