As the National Bullying Helpline suggest
All bullying is unacceptable and should not be tolerated. It can affect anyone and we are all potential targets – whether we are adult, child or the bullying is at school, in the community, at work, on line or at home.”
“Information and advice for anyone dealing with bullying.” The National Bullying Helpline website. Retrieved 11th March 2024


Schools have a responsibility to protect their children from bullying and will support you if you are been bullied even if it is happening outside school. This explained further below. For adults there is excellent local support from Citizens Advice.


From Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership
“It can feel scary to tell someone and you might worry that if you do the bullying will get worse, but there are always people who can help you. You can talk to your parent or carer, your teacher, or someone who works at your school, or any adult that you trust.”  Bullying – Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership

For Parents or Carers

“If your child is being bullied, you can talk to their school. It doesn’t matter whether the bullying is happening on the premises, outside or on the internet. All schools have a responsibility to protect their pupils from bullying. If your child is being bullied at a club, talk to the person in charge.
