School Policy On Bullying Speech
Good Morning everybody. I am here today - as I'm sure you're all
aware, to give a persuasive presentation on how to deal with bulling
at your schools.
Has a pupil in your class ever been bullied? I am quite sure that on
at least one occasion you have had to deal with this major problem.
Today I hope to give you all extra confidence on dealing with this
subject. You mustn't be affraid to help, as long as you do it in the

strength to bully others, whereas girls will usually exclude someone
from a group or may spread hurtful stories about them. But the most
important thing to remember is that any form of bullying is extremely
upsetting and disturbing for the child and in some cases the teacher
as well. You must deal with this as early as possible because it may
run out of hand.
It can sometimes be difficult for adults to understand the distress
that bullying cause. There is no certain way of spotting if a child is
being bullied, You may ask, 'How do I know whether a child is being
bullied on the playground when I am not around?' But there are certain
characteristics in their behaviour that can be spotted, such as, a
