Forms of bullying

There are many forms of bullying that can take place in the school environment. It is critical that teachers and staff working at schools are educated in the different forms of bullying that could be happening around them and learn techniques on how to identify and stop behaviour from becoming prevalent.

Different forms of bullying can become evident - verbally, physically, socially (sometimes referred to as covert) or through cyber technology, and educators must be ready to confront all scenarios.

For a more in-depth look at the different definitions, please check out our 'types of bullying' section.
