Prejudice-based bullying - scenario

Share this scenario with your staff to test their:

  • Understanding of how to handle a safeguarding situation
  • Knowledge of your procedures


  • 2 scenarios within each document - 1 aimed at primary schools and the other for secondary schools. Delete the scenario that doesn't apply to your phase
  • 2 versions of each document - 1 with answers for how staff should respond, and 1 without 

If you send the scenario to staff by email, make sure you use the version without the answers. Erase 'prejudice-based bullying' from the file name before sending it, so staff don't see which safeguarding issue the scenario is about.

If you use the scenario at a staff briefing, make sure you give staff the version without the highlighted answer text.

Want to give staff more information on bullying? Share our factsheet with them, or do more in-depth training with our staff briefing.
