INFORMATION ==> POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Bullying can never be ignored as this can cause considerable distress and anxiety to a child who is the victim of bullying. Whilst it always mean that the victim needs a good deal of support and help, it may also be a sign that the bully requires help too.
Being bullied might involve being repeatedly and persistently pushed, hit, teased, talked about, told unkind and unpleasant things about loved ones and called names. Even being the constant recipient of unpleasant facial expressions can be very upsetting. It can make the bully feel powerful while the victim may feel very frightened, anxious and constantly worried about what may happen next and when. If parents/guardians are concerned that this may be happening it is crucial that the school is informed as soon as possible. Bullying can do untold harm to a child and needs to be addressed quickly.
