​“National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence”
 
Friday 17th March
 
Bullying is when people repeatedly and intentionally use words or actions against a person or group of people which causes distress. People who do it usually have more influence or power over someone else, or want to make someone else feel less powerful or helpless.
 
Bullying is not the same as conflict between people (like having a fight) or disliking someone, even though people might bully each other because of conflict or dislike.
 
The sort of repeated behaviour that can be considered bullying include:  
· Keeping someone out of a group (online or offline)
· Giving nasty looks, making rude gestures, calling names, being rude and impolite, and constantly negative teasing.
· Spreading rumours or lies, or misrepresenting someone (i.e. using their Facebook account to post messages as if it were them)
· Messing around that goes too far
· Harassing someone based on their race, sex, religion, gender or a disability
· Intentionally and repeatedly hurting someone
· Intentionally stalking someone
· Taking advantage of any power over someone else
Bullying can happen anywhere. It can be in schools, at home, at work, online, via text messaging or via email. It can be physical, verbal, emotional, and it also includes messages, public statements and behaviour online intended to cause distress or harm (also known as cyberbullying).
