DEALING WITH CHILD AND SCHOOL BULLYING
I recommend visiting Bullying Online at www.bullying.co.uk which contains a wealth of information and advice on dealing with bullying at school, especially where the school is failing in its duty of care.

Links to other web sites, organisations and people tackling child and school bullying are at schoolbully/links.htm

At action/words.htm there's an unreferenced page of phrases and strategies which are designed for dealing with bullying in the workplace, however, there is much that can be applied to bullying in other contexts.

When we were writing our book Bullycide: death at playtime (successunlimited/books/bullycid.htm) we discovered that if bullying is rife in the playground then it's likely to be rife in the staffroom, and vice-versa. A teacher or principal who is bullying members of staff is likely to be bullying the pupils also.

Teachers are the largest group of enquirers to Bully OnLine and in most cases the identified serial bully is the head teacher with one of the behaviour profiles at workbully/serial.htm.

In these cases the good teachers - the majority - become disempowered and disenfranchised. The bullying is designed to try and hide the fact that the principal lacks integrity and maturity and thus, significantly, does not have control of discipline but is now embarking on a campaign to vilify the bullied child and their family in order to divert attention away from his or her lack of competence and to evade liability and personal accountability.
