Bullying, including cyberbullying | Safeguarding Training Centre



Bullying is “behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally”.

It can include cyberbullying (via text messages, social media or gaming) and can be motivated by prejudice against particular groups. Bullying can severely impact pupils and have serious consequences for their mental health. It can also create barriers to learning. 

Every school must have measures in place to prevent all forms of bullying, including cyberbullying.
