Prevent Bullying in Your Primary School

Bullying happens in most schools. Teachers don’t always see or hear about every instance of bullying but its effects on students are often visible.

 Students who are bullied may experience:

  • Emotional harm
    • low self-esteem
    • feeling powerless
    • anxiety
  • Difficulty concentrating in class
  • Academic performance well below their potential
  • Self-harm or worse, in extreme situations

And these negative effects may continue into adulthood.

 

 Bullying interferes with students learning and contributes to a negative culture at school. To reduce or even stop it happening altogether a comprehensive anti-bullying program is needed. By building the social/emotional intelligence of the school population, the impact and instances of bullying can be reduced and teachers can focus on quality teaching.
