There are three types of bullying:
All schools are supposed to implement an anti-bullying policy using direct guidelines set down by the UK Government.
Each school has a duty of care to our children and need to identify and address bullying issues as and when they arise. However, as we all know, many incidents go on unnoticed and not just in schools but in other youth centres and clubs and indeed the workplace too for many adults.
If you are involved in any such clubs or in charge of handling workplace bullying issues it would be wise to research what policy you can implement, and hopefully adhere to, in your line of work. Shown below is an Anti-Bullying Contract that we would like to think could be in place in all environments where victimisation may be encountered. As many people have at some point in their lives been a victim of, or closely related to someone who has suffered bullying, we do not think it unreasonable that should such a contract be shown in schools and workplaces that most would be happy to sign and support it.
Anyone concerned about whether a policy is in place and working within their club/school/work environment can seek informative and detailed advice online at the link below:-

Young people with sen.
Research suggests that children with disabilities/Special Educational Needs (SEN) might be
particularly vulnerable to bullying. Here are some reasons why:
Bullying often happens when other children see a child with SEN as being ‘different’ –
perhaps because they are doing different work, or are seen to have difficulties, or because
they find it hard to make friends or join in play activities
Children with SEN may be seen as ‘easy targets’ because they can be made to get into
trouble or do things that are inappropriate. They may then be unable or reluctant to explain
to the teacher what is happening.
Children with SEN may have low self-esteem, and be desperate to make friends. Other
children may offer ‘friendship’ with the specific intention to mislead. This can mean that the
child with SEN can easily be exploited or fall into a ‘victim’ role. They may also return to
situations that other children would avoid.
Children with SEN may not realise that it is OK to say ‘no’ to some people who tell them
what to do. (In this case it is children, but they should also be able to say ‘no’ to some
Some children with SEN may lack confidence and may be more easily hurt or upset by
things that many children might shrug off or not notice.
Other children may notice that they can make a child with SEN get into trouble by doing
things that adults won’t notice (like staring).
Some children with SEN may believe other children’s threats literally.
School policies may require that children who have been bullied give a clear account of what
happened – with times and dates. This may be difficult for a child with a learning or
Teachers do not always realise that the behaviour of a child with special needs is a result of
