Share this factsheet with your staff to:
- Remind them about what bullying is and why it's important to be alert to bullying
- Remind them what signs to look for
- Make sure they know what to do if a child is being bullied or if they have a concern
- Help them know what to do if a child tells them about prejudice-based bullying
