What to do if ...


Action against Bullying

IT IS BULLYING IF SOMEONE CONTINUALLY:-

  • Threatens you
  • Calls you names
  • Hurts you
  • Damages your possessions
  • Spreads rumours about you
  • Uses text, email, or social media to say hurtful things
  • Say hurtful things about your ethnic background, religion, gender, sexuality, disability, special educational need, appearance or specific issues in your family

 Amery hill school does not tolerate bullying. We will:- 

  • Make sure that the person being bullied is safe
  • Work to stop it happening again
  • Provide support to the person being bullied

What should you do? 

 Talk to someone you trust and get them to help you take the right steps to stop the bullying. When you are talking to an adult be clear about:-

  • What has happened to you
  • How often it has happened
  • Who was involved
  • Who saw what was happening
  • Where and when it happened
  • What you have done about it already
  • What evidence you can share in the form of screen shots if needs be

Dealing with bullying situations

Try to stay calm when the bullying starts – people who bully often enjoy the feeling of power they get if they can see that they can “wind you up”, especially in front of an audience. Try to deny them this satisfaction.

  • Breathe deeply, save any evidence of online bullying and remind yourself that:
  • There is nothing about you that deserves this. Nobody has the right to treat you like this.
  • What the bully says tells people more about them than you.
  • You might just walk away and try to ignore the bullying - they may lose interest if you don’t react.
  • Use the CEOP Reporting tab on any social media platform to report abuse.

You might try looking the person bullying you in the eye, and saying something like “I don’t know why you are doing this, but I would like it to stop. Please leave me alone now.” (This is hard to do, so don’t feel bad if you don’t feel able to do this.)

 Remember to talk to an adult you trust who will be able to help you.
