Pegasus I agree who will indeed be brave enough to not only come out and say there is a problem but do something about it....But let us not forget the victims here and there's loads of them. But that's ok it seems.

School bullying is a very difficult form of abuse to deal with purely because of the environment the bullying takes place in. However, it is a social problem which impacts on the lives of the victim for decades. Letís not forget the bully who may be crying out for help because of the social issues at home they also suffer. No child is born evil all children are born innocent, it's the adults who corrupt the system just keep toping them up because they do not have the will or inclination to care.



It is alleged that we have lost good teachers because of the bullying perpetrated by local teachers on outside teaching staff and it is shameful.

My daughter is currently suffering from bullying as Beaucamp. The head of year laughs it off and says that she is making it up. I know from other sources that bullying is rife in the school, including towards some teachers. It is about time that this was stamped out.

Bullying is certainly rife in schools, as well as the work place. One of the major problems is the bully's get "punished" by that I mean given a couple of days of school, please see my Blog. http://voiceforchildren.blogspot.com/ The victims are in fear of "grassing" on the bully's because after they've had their couple of days off, they come back and victimise the victim for being a grass.

The bully has learnt nothing, other than the worst than can happen to them is a bit of time off school, that is not a deterent it is an invitation.

The bully's need educating in the consequences of their actions on their victim, punishment should be a last resort and should be a little harsher than given a couple of days off school.

There are no incentives or realistic deterents in place that might make the bully think twice. Most school's have a very good anti bully policy in place, the problem is, it is never implemented.

A good start would be to have a dedicated teacher/councillor to deal solely with the issues of bullying. The problem with that is the reported incidents of bullying statistics will go up and that would not look good for the school.

It's a case of priority's, help the victims and bully's and tackle the problem openly and transparently. Or keep the good name of the school and brush it under the carpet!


not on my watch!!

Victims of bullying often think it's their fault - it's not. No one has to put up with bullying.

There are many different types of bullying. Charity Bullying UK says it can include:


People calling you names
Making things up to get you into trouble
Hitting, pinching, biting, pushing and shoving
Taking things away from you
Damaging your belongings
Stealing your money
Taking your friends away from you
Posting insulting messages on the internet or by text
Making silent or abusive phone calls

Spreading rumours
Threats and intimidation


Bullies can also frighten you so that you don't want to go to school, so that you pretend to be ill to avoid them.



So what can you do if you're a victim of bullying?

Bullying UK recommends you tell a friend, tell a teacher and tell your parents if you are being bullied. Also try and tell your form tutor at school so they know what's going on.
They also suggest you stay in safe areas of the school at break and lunchtime where there are plenty of other people.
For help and advice you can contact Bullying UK on ]help@bullying.co.uk



What can parents do if your children are victims of bullying?
There's no definite way of spotting if your child's being bullied as they might go to great lengths to hide it. But things like unexplained illness, reluctance to go to school, bruising, or torn clothes may be a sign something's serious is going on.

Talk to your child, listen and be patient. Ask them questions sensitively and don't interrogate them.

Go and speak to a teacher but have as much information as you can about the bullying. Write yourself some notes so you don't forget any major points.

The advice from various anti bullying groups is:
Give the school a reasonable amount of time to work out minor problems - around three days or one week.
Get daily updates from your school.
If your child is being bullied online, copy EVERYTHING. Save all emails or instant-message conversations.




Who can your child phone for help and advice?
ChildLine's special Bullying Helpline on Freephone 0800 44 11 11, open Monday to Friday, 3.30pm - 9.30pm. This is a free, confidential telephone advice.
Out of these hours the main ChildLine number 0800 11 11 may be contacted. This is open 24 hours a day.
For children who've been severely bullied there are Red Balloon learner centres.
They provide an intensive care programme of full time education in a safe learning environment for children unable to go to school.
The Red Balloon centres are based in Norwich, Cambridge and North West London.
For more information on these go to http://redballoonlearner.co.uk

Guernseyguy07 I feel sorry for you, my son was bullied for most of his secondary education, and the teachers were not over helpful,

Its lucky that it has not affected his life, and now he has great friends and enjoys life to the full

I hope that this will be the same for you...

I agree with that......I was bullied at school and it still stays with me now (from the 1950's) I sometimes despair of a world where this is condoned...but while people still kill /main each other and rape and kill little children...........I shall be (as my mother predicted) quite happy when my time to go arrives

Kids are so cruel - they pick on anyone or anything that is different! (then in there late teens hey all want to be different)
but I do feel it is how they receive things from the home front.....children are not born prejudiced but I have heard comments (even from friends of mine) in front of children that would amount to brainwashing them with prejudice!!! such a shame when everybody could be happy together.!

Most teens are nice (my grandson is 19 and a very nice person - not perfect - just nice!!!!) I still think that home life has quite a bit to do with it - and except in the 'hardened areas' they normally grow out of being 'not nice' once they don't get peer pressure - or when they don't care about peer pressure any more - just give them time!!! (I know, I know, easier said than done when you are on the receiving end - but this too shall pass)
