Bullying

Whether it is you that is being bullied, or you are worried about a friend who is being bullied, please speak to someone. The best person to speak to is either your parent or an adult who is at the place where the bullying happens.

So, if bullying happens in school, it’s best to talk to a teacher. If bullying happens in a club, it’s best to talk to the club leader. If bullying is happening online, on your phone or anywhere else, talk to your parents or someone in your family. If you find it difficult to talk to someone around you, or if you feel you are not being listened to, call Childline on 0800 1111.

Things to keep you safe
  • Try and pretend to be confident, even if you feel frightened inside. Sometimes if you look confident, it makes a bully think twice about picking on you.
  • Try and stay with other people, and near an adult. If you get bullied outside, ask friends to come round to yours and go out together rather than on your own. If you get bullied in the playground, stay where a teacher or member of staff can see you.
