How are different groups, such as ethnic minorities, asylum seekers and disabled pupils, affected by bullying?

In this study, 48 traveller children at primary schools in Lancashire were asked about bullying (see Juric and Eslea). Almost 40% said that they had been bullied at some point during their time at school. The bullying was usually physical (84.2%) rather than verbal (26.3%). This physical bullying was often very violent, examples given include having an arm broken and being repeatedly kicked in the face. A quarter (25%) of the girls who had been bullied said they had missed school as a result, 10% of the boy victims had done the same. Most of the children who had reported the bullying to someone said things had been worked out successfully.
