ADVICE

The advice given by children and young people on dealing with bullying includes: 

*    Tell an adult you can trust
*    Keep a diary of what the bullies do including dates and descriptions
*    Write a letter to your Headteacher
*    Don't react, show the bullies you don't care and they will often lose interest
