Procedures To Deal With Bullying

Always play with a group of friends in areas supervised by teachers.

If you are being bullied:

  • Stay calm
  • Maintain eye contact
  • Tell the bully to stop.  Make an assertive statement like: "I don't like what you're doing or saying" or "I don't have to listen to that"
  • Walk away
  • If bullying happens again or you feel unsafe, speak to a teacher straight away

If you see another student being bullied:

  • Don't join in.  Being part of a group that is bullying someone or watching bullying shows support for the bullying behaviour
  • Support the person being bullied and encourage him or her to do something about it
  • Speak to a teacher about it
