Are some children more likely to be bullied than others?

Key statement

Bullying can happen to anyone, at any time in their school career, but there are some characteristics and factors which might make it more likely.
.........................................

Comment

Any child can become the victim of bullying if he or she is put into a school where bullying is not tackled effectively. Being different in some obvious way (such as ethnicity, disability or religion) may make it more likely that a child will be bullied. However, research seems to be pointing towards social skills and character as being even more closely linked to involvement in bullying than these more obvious factors. What is often not clear is whether a child is bullied because she is anxious and has low self- esteem, or is anxious and has low self-esteem because she has been bullied.
