Service description:
What is Bullying?

Behaviour by an individual or group, usually repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally through threats or
superior force. When persistent and threatening behaviour is directed towards a child who is unable to stand up for him/her self, then bullying becomes a major problem. Being a bully, or being bullied, can happen to anyone and can have long term effects.

Do not accept that calling names and teasing is not bullying. If your child is upset – it is bullying. Your child’s school has to have an Anti-bullying Policy by law. You are entitled to ask for a copy to look at. The policy should tell you what the school will do if bullying is reported and also what the school is doing to stop it happening in the
first place
.
Step 1
-Ask to see the Class Teacher/Form Tutor and explain your worries; ask if they have noticed anything and what would be the best way of sorting it out.
Step 2
-Keep a diary of events. Write a letter to the year head explaining that the problem has not been sorted and that your would like your letter put into your child’s file
together with notes of the actions they have taken.
Step 3
-Write a letter to the Chair of Governors, send a copy to your local councillor and ask for a meeting.
-If you are still unhappy contact the Education Welfare Officer. If the bullying is very serious the police may need to be involved.
