    What you need to know

    Bullying can happen in a number of different ways and all of these ways can have a huge impact on somebody's life.
    Different types of bullying include:
    • Verbal e.g. name calling/ spreading rumours
    • Physical e.g. assault
    • Excluding people
    • Manipulating others against someone
    • Cyber bullying

    Bullying is really difficult to deal with so it is important that you tell somebody if you feel you are being bullied.

    Top Tips

    1) Keep a record of incidences of bullying e.g who was present/ where was it
    2) Be sure to take screen shots and save messages if you feel you're being cyber bullied
    3) If the behaviour is significant consider informing the police, some bullying/abusive behaviour is a criminal offense
    4) Don't fight back/retaliate to the bullying, this could lead to you getting into trouble
    5) Block bullies on your mobile or social media
    6) Don't share your online details with people you don't know or trust
    7) Keep your privacy settings high
    8) If your friend is being bullied be a good support for them
    9) Try and keep a wide variety of friends
    10) Tell your parents/carers, teachers and other professionals such as school nurse for support
