Bullying happens in every school, in every age group. It is one of the hardest things to talk to about, but this is the only way you can make it stop.
People are bullies for lots of reasons, sometimes they have been bullied themselves. Even adults can be bullies; when adults are agressive, controlling or make people scared at home this is called domestic abuse (bullying at home). For some young people in realtionships their partner might be a bully - this is also domestic abuse. Whatever the reason, you don’t deserve it. Everyone should be able to go to school or go home without feeling scared or threatened.
If this is how you feel, you need to tell someone. The problem won’t go away if you just ignore it. Try telling a parent or another adult at home. They can help you so you don’t feel like you have to handle the situation alone. Or tell a teacher. If school know that you are being bullied they can stop the bully being around you sometimes. If you ask the adult not to say anything to the bully, sometimes they can stop the bullying without the person knowing that you have told someone about it.
At times adults might need to talk to someone if they're worried about you being harmed by someone else. They will always tell you first before they do. Remember - by telling someone you have not done anything wrong.
If you want to talk to someone that doesn’t work at school, you can speak to your School Nurse. Tell your teacher that you would like to speak to your School Nurse and we can come and see you on your own.
