Anti-Bullying Week 2012

16 November 2012

Anti-Bullying Week commences on 19th November to 23rd November.

The National Anti-Bullying Week commences on 19th November to 23rd November, and FA Tesco Skills and the RUCST are proud to support the message: ‘We’re better without bullying’.

What is bullying?

Bullying is when someone deliberately hurts another person – they do it because they think they have more power than them and they usually do it more than once. Bullying can include hitting, shoving, name calling, leaving someone out or sending horrible messages. Bullying can happen anywhere and to anyone.

Help! I think I’m being bullied– what can I do?

Remember Bullying is not your fault and it doesn’t mean you’re weak. It is always wrong and you do not have to put up with it.

Tell someone. The best way to stop bullying is to talk to someone you trust – your parent or carer, coach, teacher or a friend.

Don’t respond if you are bullied, stay calm and walk away. If the bullying is online, do not reply.

How can I help stop bullying?

Speak up!

Make it clear to the bully that you don’t like it! If it’s by phone or on the internet, don’t pass on nasty messages.

Tell someone

Tell a parent, carer, coach or teacher what you have seen or heard. This is not telling tales or grassing. Bullying is wrong.

Be respectful and kind to everyone you meet

You won’t always like everyone or want everyone as a friend, but we all deserve respect. Go to TheFA.com/Respect for some great video clips and tips!
