    Bullying can be
    • Physical Hitting, pushing, taking someone's belongings.
    • Verbal Name calling, insulting, racist or sexist remarks, threatening or demanding money.
    • Indirect Spreading rumours, sending abusive text messages/emails, excluding someone from a group.
    How to react
    • Try to ignore bullies, walk away and do not let them see that you are upset.
    • Don't give them the satisfaction of getting a reaction from you.
    • If you can, calmly stand up for yourself and ask them to stop their behaviour.
    • Try to stay with your friends and avoid being on your own.
    What will happen if you tell a teacher?
    • The teacher will listen to you and offer support.
    • The teacher can talk to the person who is bullying you (if you agree) and take action against the bullying
    What to do if you see bullying
    • Stay with the victim
    • Comfort and support the victim.
    • Tell someone e.g. a teacher what you have seen.
    • Tell the victim to report the incident.
    • If you are in a group where one member is bullying, show that you disapprove, because by doing nothing you support the bully.
