How can I help them?
This safeguarding and online protection information is for professionals and contains legal and general guidance on all aspects of bullying.
Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. Being bullied at school, home or online might involve someone pushing you, hitting you, teasing you, talking about you or calling you names. Nobody has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad. If you are being bullied you don't have to deal with it alone.
Every school must encourage good behaviour and prevent all forms of bullying amongst pupils.
As technology and the internet are becoming more and more accessible it is paramount to children’s safeguarding to be in the know of what they are accessing, the risks involved and how we can encourage them to make safe decisions when online.
We are often asked for help in working specifically with targets of bullying as this can be a very delicate and upsetting situation.
We have a small safeguarding team supporting schools and academies.

Racist violence, harassment and abuse are closely related to, and sometimes difficult to distinguish from, bullying. Racist bullying in schools can range from ill-considered remarks, which are not intended to be hurtful, to deliberate physical attacks causing serious injury.
