What is Bullying?
Bullying means that one child is deliberately (usually) using
his or her power over another to make them feel bad. Bullying is
not having a single argument or fight with someone. It isn’t saying
something bad to someone once when you are angry. Bullying goes on
deliberately (on purpose) over a period of time.
Bullying can include one or more of the following:
- Hitting, kicking, pinching, spitting at or threatening
- Name calling
- Making a fool of someone
- Teasing or sending nasty notes
- Spreading rumours and malicious gossip about someone
- Deliberately destroying another person’s property
- Repeatedly excluding someone by not talking to them, or not
letting them join in
- Malicious texting, emailing etc
- Hurtful remarks about people’s sexual orientation
BUT it is not bullying when two children/young people of
approximately the same age and strength have the occasional fight
can I get more help?
There are many places you can ask for help, your mum, dad, your
teacher, or any suitable grown-up, you can find out more on who to
talk to on the Where can I get More Help?
If you have been a victim of bullying, then don't be afraid to
speak up and
Report a Bullying Incident.
