Bullying- How to help

Hi Everyone,

Bullying is one of those things that can leave everyone involved feeling really helpless. It’s important to know that there are lots of ways that you can help people involved in a bullying situation.

There are ways you could support a bully to change their actions.
There are ways you could help to support a bystander.
There are ways you could help to support someone who has experienced bullying.

It’s important to remember that it’s not your job to try and fix all of the problems or to fix the people involved in bullying, but just like in the Boundin’ video it can help a lot if you take some initiative to try and support the people involved. However, you guys are often the first people to know if bullying is happening, so you can often be the first people to do something positive.
Lots of you recognised in our silent conversation that support was a big thing that could help to stop a bullying situation.

Here are a few websites that I’d like you have a look at. I’d like you to have your green book beside you to record any ideas or interesting information that you come across.
