CAMPAIGN: Say NO to bullying!

20 November 2012

Blues back anti-bullying campaign

We’re better without bullying!

FA Tesco Skills is the proud supporter of National Anti-Bullying Week19 - 23 November 2012.

What is bullying? Bullying is when someone deliberately hurts another person – they do it because they think they have more power than them and they usually do it more than once. Bullying can include hitting, shoving, name calling, leaving someone out or sending horrible messages. Bullying can happen anywhere and to anyone.

Help! I think I’m being bullied – what can I do? Remember Bullying is not your fault and it doesn’t mean you’re weak. It is always wrong and you do not have to put up with it.

Tell someone. The best way to stop bullying is to talk to someone you trust – your parent or carer, coach, teacher or a friend.

Don’t respond. If you are bullied, stay calm and walk away. If the bullying is online, do not reply. 

How can I help stop bullying? Speak up! Make it clear to the bully that you don’t like it! If it’s by phone or on the internet, don’t pass on nasty messages. 

Tell someone. Tell a parent, carer, coach or teacher what you have seen or heard. This is not telling tales or grassing. Bullying is wrong. 

Be respectful and kind to everyone you meet. You won’t always like everyone or want everyone as a friend, but we all deserve respect.
