What is bullying?

A definition of bullying

Bullying behaviour is defined as an ongoing and deliberate misuse of power in relationships through repeated verbal, physical and/or social behaviour that intends to cause physical, social and/or psychological harm.

A checklist to help define whether an incident is bullying or conflict is to ask:

  • Is it repeated?
  • Is it intended to cause stress?
  • Is it grounded in imbalance (is one person trying to get power over another person)?¬†

What is bullying?

Any behaviour that causes a student to feel unsafe or unhappy at school is a concern

Not all behaviour will be bullying behaviour

How we help our students will depend on identifying the behaviour and working with children, parents and teachers together
