Child Safety Information
The following links provide information for parents, carers and children on how to keep safe at school, home and the internet.
Bullying is 'The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or through cyberspace'
Bullying differs from teasing/falling out between friends because:
- There is deliberate intention to hurt or humiliate.
- There is a power imbalance that makes it hard for the victim to defend themselves.
- It is usually persistent.
Occasionally an incident may be deemed to be bullying even if the behaviour has not been repeated or persistent. This possibility should be considered, particularly in cases of hate crime related bullying or cyberbullying.
