Bullying information and leaflets
One of the most difficult times in a child's life can be if they are bullied. Bullying can be defined as deliberately hurtful behaviour, repeated over a period of time, where it is difficult for those being bullied to defend themselves.
The Department for Education offer advice regarding behaviour and bullying on their webpage which you may find useful. They have produced guidance on commonly asked questions regarding bullying, including details of where to get help, for pupils, parents and teaching professionals.
The Parent Partnership Service have created a number of bullying advice leaflets to download.
