Our experiences


I’ve been bullied, I told a teacher and they sorted it out


I’ve been a bully and I said sorry and never did it again


My friend was a bully and I persuaded them to stop


My friend has been bullied , I helped them to tell an adult and with their help in the end we made friends with the bully


How can we help the bullies


  • We can work together to show them the right way
  • Tell a teacher
  • We need to teach the bullies that in the future it could happen to them
  • When wrong choices are made we have to own up


How to stop bullying


  • Ignore them
  • Tell an adult you trust
  • Stand up for yourself
  • Report online bullying using CEOP
  • Find a friend you trust to tell, then get an adult to help
