Anti-Bully Patrol Officers
- Spot children who are alone or lonely and help them to join in, or play with them.
- Be a listening ear for any child who wants to report bullying. Take the concerns to Senior Leaders if necessary
When do they work?
All day long. You will see them wearing their jackets. You can talk to them at any time.
Are they like the Police? Can they tell me off?
They are there to give out advice and encourage everyone to be included. They are NOT there to tell you off!
The Definition of Bullying:
“Behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally.”
Bullying can be direct (either physical or verbal) or indirect (for example, being ignored or not spoken to). It results in pain and distress to the victim. There is a difference between bullying and the ‘falling out’ that both children and adults can experience, where friendships are soon restored. Bullying is the systematic and persistent use of aggression with the intention of hurting another person.
I think I am being bullied. Who can I tell?
