Bullying can have a devastating effect on children’s self esteem and educational prospects. Despite a continuing focus by schools on dealing with bullies, it is a perennial problem. There is no single solution that will stamp out bullying overnight; staff, children and parents need to work together in an ongoing fight against bullying behaviour.

Bullying behaviours

Bullying behaviours range from teasing and name calling to verbal threats and physical violence.
