What could be done to support pupils who are being bullied?

Key statement

Many of the programmes to support bullied children involve a positive contribution from other pupils and many programmes see building self-esteem as an important part of a child's recovery and empowerment.

A Cautionary Note About Using Peer Mediation
Mediation can be a very useful way of helping people to solve disputes or relationship problems. However, bullying involves a serious imbalance of power and in such circumstances the mediation process may be exploited by a bully and used as another opportunity to upset the victim.

Comment
