Bullying for Parents

Bullying

Bullies are very cunning and are expert at getting away with it.

Sandwell SCB believes that children and young people have the right to be taught in a positive learning environment where everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve socially, emotionally and academically.

We all know that bullying goes on in and out of school, and parents, carers, teachers and other professionals have a duty to take action is they suspect or discover that child(ren) are being bullied.

Bullying includes:

  • People calling you names
  • Making things up to get you into trouble
  • Hitting, pinching, biting, pushing and shoving
  • Taking things away from you
  • Damaging your belongings
  • Stealing your money
  • Taking your friends away from you
  • Cyberbullying
  • Spreading rumours
  • Threats and intimidation
  • Making silent or abusive phone calls
  • Bullies can also frighten you so that you don’t want to go to school, so that you pretend to be ill to avoid them

What Parents and Carers should do?

Take action!

  • If you suspect or discover your own child or a child you know is being bullied: · If you are concerned about your own Child, talk to his/her Teacher; or the Head Teacher (see Additional Guidance)
  • If you are concerned about someone else’s Child, talk to his/her parents/carers;
  • Get Advice e.g. from The Anti Bullying Network or Bullying UK
