What is bullying?
Bullying is not the odd occasion of falling out with friends, name calling, arguments or fights. However these are also serious incidents which would be dealt with by teachers.
In our school a bully is someone who hurts someone more than once on several occasions, by using a behaviour which is meant to hurt, frighten or upset another person.
Bullying can be...
Emotional: Hurting people’s feelings, leaving you out.
Physical: Punching, kicking, spitting, hitting or pushing.
Verbal: Being teased or name calling.
Racist: Calling you racist names or using racist behaviour.
Cyber: Saying unkind things by text, email, social networking or other chat programmes; or sharing unkind images.
