How might bullying make people feel? Sad or depressed They don’t want to go to school Afraid That there is something wrong with them They want to hurt themselves or others They can’t concentrate on their school work Lonely, or that they don’t have any friends.
Why are some children bullied? It could be because… They look like they won’t fight back and are gentle and kind. Lack of confidence & self-esteem Lack of social skills They are very good at their school work They find school work difficult They are seen to be different in some way (but it’s good to be different - it would be very boring if we were all the same!) No reason at all! No one deserves to be bullied
We are all unique! No one should be bullied for the things that make them different What makes us different? It’s good to be different - it would be very boring if we were all the same! Our likes & dislikes How we look Where we come from Our families What we are good at
What can you do if you or someone else is being bullied? Tell someone you trust (a parent / carer, a teacher, a friend) If you feel under threat, always YELL to attract attention, RUN away from danger and TELL a teacher immediately. If you are being threatened for a possession, hand it over. No object, no matter how new or expensive, is more important than your safety.
What can you do if you or someone else is being bullied? Don't give your personal and online contact details to people you do not trust. Keep any nasty messages or emails as evidence and show them to someone you trust. Don’t be a bystander ̶ if you see bullying happen, TELL someone.
This Anti-Bullying Week we ask your school to work together to stop the bullying of ALL children and young people. What can you do to help? Thank you! CALL FOR ACTION
