PSHE 11-14/KS3/Levels E&F
Bullying

Overview

    Press Packer Nikki thinks teachers should try to encourage children to tell them things if they are worried.

    This activity encourages students to improve their school's communications.


Learning aims
  • What a bully, victim, and ally are

  • Ways of dealing with bullying

  • Reflect and evaluate on how their behaviour affects others
1.Icebreaker
    Read the reports:

    Ask the class:

  • How would you help to stamp out bullying?

  • How can it be made easier to tell a teacher?

  • Why do some students bully others?

  • Why is it important to find out more about bullies as well as their victims?

    Bullying

    Give the students questions to research and discuss answers to, for example:

  • How widespread is bullying?

  • Why do people bully?

  • Why is bullying harmful to victims, bullies and the school community?

  • What can students, teachers and parents do to stop bullying?
2. Main activity
    Have students share their research.

    Get them to critique your school's anti-bullying policy and suggest ways to improve it, if needed.

    If your school does not have an anti-bullying policy, help your class draft one.

    Students prepare a written report of their findings and recommendations and present it to the headteacher.


3. Extension activity
    Discuss the following:

    What does it feel like to be bullied?

    How would you feel if you were the bully?

    Why is it important to listen to bullies as well as victims?


4. Plenary
    Recap on the main skills that the students have been using.

    Final questions:

    Why should everyone be valued?

  • Bullying is sometimes caused by an individual and sometimes by a group.

  • The most important factor is the effect on the victim.

  • Many famous people have been victims of bullying. Myleene Klass from Hear'Say was reportedly bullied at school.

    School policies on bullying help when:

  • everyone knows what the policy is
  • the policy is applied consistently
  • everyone believes in the policy
