Being bullied is a horrible and distressing experience. It can have serious and long-term consequences for some young people, even lasting throughout their lives. The important thing is not to put up with it, but to ask for help and advice. It is important to remember, however, that not all incidents between young people are the result of bullying, and that not all bullying is immediately obvious.
Each school should have an anti-bullying policy. Parent/carers and pupils as well as all staff should be aware of the contents of this, in terms of what strategies the school will use to ensure the welfare of all pupils in the school.
Parents/carers who have any concern about bullying in their child’s school should discuss any concerns with the school at the earliest opportunity.
