Essential information for patient and family

  • Bullying is more common in boys and in the youngest pupils in a school.
  • The commonest type of bullying is general name-calling, followed by being physically hit, being threatened and having rumours spread about the bullied individual.
  • Research suggests an incidence of about one in five for being bullied (with higher figures for children who attend remedial classes or who are of Asian origin) and up to one in ten for bullying others.
