Dealing with bullying at school

​Bullying and how to stop it

We identify bullying as any behaviour that is:

  • harmful and carried out by an individual or a group
  • repetitive, wilful or persistent
  • an imbalance of power, leaving the person being bullied feeling defenceless

Make sure you understand your school's bullying policy and always share your concerns with the school directly. Your school can only resolve an issue of bullying if they are aware of it.

It's important that you understand that bullying is not an acceptable part of ‘growing up’. You should take any of your child's concerns about bullying seriously.

If you're not comfortable with talking to your school directly, you can contact the Inclusion and Early Intervention Team.

Counter bullying policies and guidelines

All schools have counter bullying policies which address:

  • activity to reduce the likelihood of bullying and to increase the likelihood of incidents being reported
  • systematic follow up of reported incidents of bullying between pupils, between staff, and between staff and pupils

The policies are based on the counter bullying policy. This policy is supported by the information available within the counter bullying guidelines booklet.

In addition to this a range of Education and school initiatives support the development of school ethos and practices which counter bullying. These include:

  • healthy schools
  • solution oriented schools
  • critical skills
  • ​social and emotional aspects of learning
  • peer mediation
  • school councils

If you're interested in finding out more about these programs contact your local school or the Inclusion and Early Intervention Team.
