Pupils who are bullying need to change themselves and learn to behave in a socially acceptable manner. Signs and Symptoms A child may indicate by signs or behaviour that he is being bullied. Adults should be aware of these possible signs and that they should investigate if a child: * doesn’t want to go on the school bus * begs to be driven to school * is unwilling to go to school (school phobic) begins to be truant * becomes withdrawn, anxious, or lacking in confidence * starts stammering * attempts or threatens suicide or runs away from home/ school * cries himself to sleep at night or has nightmares * feels ill in the morning * begins to do poorly in school work * asks for money or starts stealing money (to pay bully) * has unexplained cuts or bruises * comes home starving (money / lunch has been stolen) * becomes aggressive, disruptive or unreasonable * is bullying other children or siblings * stops eating * is frightened to say what’s wrong gives improbable excuses for any of the above * is afraid to use the internet or mobile phone * is nervous and jumpy when a cyber message is received * lack of eye contact * becomes short tempered * change in attitude towards people at home.
Procedure * The student should inform the Class Teacher, School Counsellor, senior students or any other teacher, a parent or adult at home whom the child feels he can trust. * All known/reported incidences of bullying will be investigated by the Class Teacher or by a senior member of staff. Parents of the victim may also be questioned about the incident or about their general concerns. * The bully (bullies) will be asked to genuinely apologize. The pupils will be reconciled. * The bully and the victim may be referred to the School Counselor. * After the incident / incidents have been investigated and dealt with, each case will be monitored to ensure repeated bullying does not take place. * Records of the incident will be maintained by the school authorities.

Prevention SLT, School Counsellors, all teachers and School Prefectural Body are involved in the prevention of bullying through the following: * Creating awareness through student orientation. * Conflict Resolution corners in each class. * Writing stories or poems or drawing pictures about the negative aspects of bullying. Reading stories about bullying or having them read to a class or at assembly. * Role-plays directing students about how to handle a situation of bullying. * Classroom discussions about bullying and why it matters that bullies are dealt with promptly. Suggestions to Parents * Do not attempt to sort the problem out yourself by speaking to the child whom you think may be the bully or by speaking to their parents. * Do not encourage your child to be ‘a bully’ back. * Talk to your child to build his self confidence and self esteem. * Inform the school authorities.
