Bullying – help and support
- We are working to prevent bullying in schools and the wider community. We have an anti-bulliying strategy, which aims to show our commitment to stopping bullying both in and out of school.
- It's not just about physical abuse – kicking, hitting and pushing.
Bullying includes verbal and emotional abuse too, such name calling, teasing, making threats or offensive comments, gossiping, being ignored or left out of groups, and spreading hurtful and untruthful rumours.
Bullying can be done through a third party, or via text messages, emails and chat-rooms.
Bullying can be defined as "deliberate hurtful behaviour, repeated over a period of time, where it is difficult for the victim to defend him or herself”.
