    • Bullies can also frighten you so that you don't want to go to school, so that you pretend to be ill to avoid them

What can you do if you are being bullied.

Tell a friend
Your mates can support you, even if you’re not ready to talk about it in detail.

Tell a parent or guardian
They should be there for you, even if you’re not ready to take it to your teachers.

Tell a teacher
The teachers in your school have a duty to look after you. Ask about the anti-bullying policy at your school.

Find a way to stay safe at school
No-one should be too scared to go into school. You have a right to be there. Stay away from your bullies and stay in a group of friends when you don’t feel safe.

Walk home with someone or get a lift
If bullying happens on the way home it can be hard to avoid. Walking with someone, varying your route or getting a lift can help.

Ask your mates to look out for you
Your friends can be there for you, even if you don’t want to talk about the details to them. They can support you to tell someone who could help make it stop.

Don’t fight back
You could get in trouble or get hurt if you fight back against bullies. There’s no shame in not fighting back.

Don’t reply to an abusive message
Replying to a message from a bully can encourage the bullies and end up upsetting you more.

Block the bully from contacting you
Some phones will allow you to block numbers, and you can block, delete or unfriend other users on many social networking sites. Stopping them from contacting you could help reduce the amount of stress you feel.

Don’t go along with what they want
Going along with what bullies want will give them the message that bullying is working.

Find out about your school’s anti-bullying policy
It’s good to know what your school has promised to do in the event of bullying. There might be something in the policy that could help you.

Keep a record of the bullying
Saving texts, emails and messages or writing down when someone has bullied you in person can be a useful way to keep track of what has happened and will help when you are ready to report the bullying.
