Bullying can take place anywhere - at school, on the school bus or outside school. All schools have anti-bullying rules and if a teacher knows there is a problem they will help you.

Tell them what is happening and that you are worried.

How to beat bullies


If you are being bullied tell someone - a friend, teacher or anyone you feel comfortable talking to.

Explain what is happening, how often, who did it, where it happened and if anyone else saw it.

Keep speaking up about it until someone listens.

Be more confident - don't let the bully think you're afraid.

If a bully feels they don't have any power over you, it takes the 'fun' out of bullying for them.

Be with friends or an adult at the times when you're most in danger of being bullied.

Don't fight back - it can make the situation worse and get you into trouble.

Don't blame yourself for what has happened



Bullying is something which happens to a lot of people. Most people who have been bullied get through it and so can you but remember - the sooner you talk to someone about it, the sooner it can be stopped.
