Report Bullying

Bullying is defined as the repetitive, intentional harming of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power.

Bullying is, therefore:

  • Deliberately hurtful
  • Repeated, often over a period of time
  • Difficult to defend against

At The John Warner School bullying is considered a ‘dangerous’ rather than ‘difficult’ behaviour (see Behaviour for Learning Policy).

Bullying is often motivated by prejudice against particular groups, for example of grounds of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or because a child is adopted or has caring responsibilities. It might be motivated by actual or perceived differences.
