What is bullying?

Bullying is when someone, or several people, do horrible things to you or keep on teasing you in a way that you don’t like. There are lots of ways in which you can be bullied:

  • being called names
  • being put down or humiliated
  • being teased
  • being pushed or pulled about
  • having money and other possessions taken or messed about with
  • having rumours spread about you
  • being ignored and left out
  • being hit, kicked or physically hurt
  • being threatened or intimidated

Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. Being bullied at school, home or online might involve someone pushing you, hitting you, teasing you, talking about you or calling you names. No one has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad. If you are being bullied you don’t have to put up with it – you can talk to someone about it. Please tell someone, you can make an appointment to see one of the doctors at the surgery on 01669 620339.
