What to do if you’re being bullied

It certainly doesn’t affect everyone when they move to secondary school but when bullying does happen it is upsetting and difficult to know what to do. Here, Lucy from CBBC’s Our School explains how she helped her friend who was being bullied and offers advice on the best way to deal with it if it happens.


  • If someone tries to bully you, don’t react negatively and lash out
  • Speak to your friends, parents, carer or your teacher, they may be able to comfort you and offer advice
  • Don’t suffer in silence
  • Remember it is not your fault
