Help to successfully tackle bullying by reporting it to the school or the police.

  • If you suspect your child is being bullied at school, you will need to contact the school
  • If you think bullying is happening outside of school, schools can still take action
  • On weekends or during school holidays, making a complaint to the police about intimidation, physical attacks or threats can be the best thing to do if the bullies are over 10, the age of criminal responsibility

Cyberbullying in school

Schools have a legal duty to have measures in place to support the person being bullied and to apply disciplinary sanctions to the pupil doing the bullying.
