Bullying and child on child abuse

At Hartismere, we define bullying as a sustained willful act with a conscious desire to hurt, threaten or frighten someone else. 

It is often aimed at certain people because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation or any other aspect such as appearance or disability. It can happen face-to-face or online.

Bullying can take many forms including:

Bullying is not simply a 'falling out'.

If you have any concerns about bullying, please speak to your Head of Year.
