PSHE KS2 / KS3: Being bullied - Jake's Story

Jake’s intimate description of how it felt to be bullied - the sense of isolation and fear that he went through - will help students to empathise with his story.

He describes how being bullied pervaded every aspect of his life, making him afraid even when he was at home, and also how being in a new environment and making new friends through the army cadets helped to develop his sense of self-confidence.

This film will be particularly useful for teachers in opening up discussion around bullying, self-confidence and the effects of an individual’s actions on others.

This clip is from the series When I Worry About Things.
