Bullying in schools

Bullying is wrong and it affects the victim, impacts on our friends and family and the wider community, but also affects the perpetrator.​

It is important that you do not struggle alone when you are being bullied, always tell a person who you can trust. This will then help you to access the support and guidance that you may need during a difficult time.

What is classed as bullying?

The Government's definition of bullying is: "Behaviour by an individual or group usually repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally."
