Are you being bullied or do you know someone who is?
Hurting someone with your voice – online or in person – is bullying.
Hurting someone physically with your hands or feet is bullying.
If you know someone who is a bully then do something about it !
Some bullies have been bullied and need our help too.
Bullying is unacceptable so be brave and tell someone. In our school, we promote the Restorative Justice ‘What happened?’ approach to managing our emotions and linked behaviour. It is amazing how our playtimes have changed as you have all learned to talk about your problems to solve them.
Here are some people you can talk to or places you can go to for support and advice:
Speak to a trusted adult or your friends at school or home.
Write down your worries and post them in the worry box at school.
Child Line is a free, private and confidential service where you can be you. Whatever your worry, whenever you need help, however you want to get in touch. They are there for you online and on the phone. Call Childline on: 0800 1111 (open from 9am each day for calls and 1-2-1 counsellor chats).
