Everyone needs to feel safe and looked after at school. Bullying is not OK and should never happen, but we know that bullying can happen on the way to school, in the playground, on the phone and on the internet.
Some kids are still learning how to behave like a good friend and they can sometimes be unhappy, but there is no excuse for bullying. Kids who bully others might think it's funny or cool to hurt other people. Or maybe they're angry and don't care who they hurt. There's a lot you can do to stop someone bullying you or someone else.
You might have an argument that makes you feel upset and sad, but this isn't bullying. Bullying is when someone keeps picking on someone else over and over again, saying or doing mean and hurtful things that make another person upset or angry.
