anti-bullying week 2014Anti Bullying week 

If a child tells you they’re being bullied, the first thing to do is to listen!

Talking to the school

To stop the bullying, it’s essential for you or your child, or both of you, to talk to the school. Think about who would be the best person to approach first. Discuss this with your child because there may be a particular teacher your child feels more at ease with.

Your school nurse is available to talk to on 02476 961418
