Liaison and referral

Bullying by fellow pupils is a primary responsibility of the school; every school should have an anti-bullying policy.

Referral to a specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service is advised if the child or adolescent:

  • is severely depressed
  • has suicidal thoughts
  • is self-harming
  • shows social withdrawal
  • refuses to eat
  • is severely anxious or has insomnia
  • is developing school refusal.
