What is bullying?
Our School Council asked the children what they thought bullying was. Together the children and staff created a definition of what we think bullying is...
Bullying is constant and repeated actions which upset or hurt someone else. These could include physically hurting, calling names, not letting people join in or isolating them, laughing at people, threatening or taking money or objects.
These repeated actions of others may make someone not want to come to school. The person being bullied feels scared and powerless and his might stop them from telling.
Please look at the Useful Links in the Community Section of our website. There is some very useful information on cyber bullying!
