About Bullying

If you are having problems then you should tell somebody - an adult at home or school or you can contact Childline.

Together, we can make it STOP!

What is bullying?

Bullying involves an imbalance of power.

a number of times, by using behaviour

which is frightening, upsetting or hurtful. 


Bullying can be:

leaving you out, bossing you about

PHYSICAL: punching, kicking, spitting,

hitting, pushing, touching you

when you don’t like it

CYBER: through texts, e-mail, facebook

and other networking sites
