Bullying

The school bullying policy is on the school website. Contact class teacher/year-head/guidance counsellor/school management if you need help!

Bullying

Living in fear and wondering 'why me?' are common symptoms of BULLYING.

Remember: There are things you can do about bullying. The most important thing is to tell someone you trust.

Bullying is the ongoing abuse of another person through physical or mental torture. To make matters worse this torture is often conducted in the presence of others. The humiliation felt by the victim is hard to understand if you have never been bullied. If it happens over a long period of time it can have devastating effects on a young person’s mental health.

Types of bullying

  • Physical bullying involves harmful actions against another person's body such as hitting, pinching or kicking. It might also involve interfering with another person's property. Some examples include stealing or damaging things.
  • Verbal bullying is talking to a person or about a person in a way that is unkind and hurtful to that person, for example: teasing, name-calling, spreading rumours or whispering.
  • Non verbal bullying refers to all the behaviour that upsets, excludes or embarrasses another person, for example: leaving someone out of a game or activity on purpose, making rude gestures at someone or writing hate notes about a person that will be upsetting to them.

There are lots of myths about bullying such as:

  • “It’s a fact of life…everyone is bullied at some stage”. FALSE
  • “It toughens you up and prepares you for real life”. FALSE
  • “We all have to learn to stand up for ourselves…bullying helps us to do this”. FALSE
  • “There’s nothing you can do about bullying”. FALSE

The truth about bullying:

  • Not everyone is bullied but it’s estimated that around 30% of young people experience bullying at some stage.
  • Rather than toughening you up for life it can destroy your ability to enjoy life and can kill any self-confidence you had.
  • Bullying can leave you feeling guilty for not standing up for yourself but it persists because it is almost impossible for the victim to stand up to the bully.
