Anti-Bullying Advice for Students

 

The Student Planner contains the following advice for victims of bullying:

 

What should you do?

Tell yourself that you do not deserve to be bullied.

Try not to show you are upset.

Stay within safe areas or with a group of people – there is safety in numbers.

Try to be assertive – say no – walk away confidently.

Don't fight back – it usually makes things worse.

ALWAYS TELL. Talk to an adult you can trust. You will be taken seriously and the best course of action considered.

Keep a record of who is involved and what actually happened.

NEVER KEEP THESE PROBLEMS TO YOURSELF
