What is Cyberbullying?

Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place online. Unlike bullying offline, online bullying can follow the child wherever they go, via social networks, gaming and mobile phone. Cyberbullying includes sending, posting, or sharing negative, harmful, false, or mean content about someone else. It can include sharing personal or private information about someone else causing embarrassment or humiliation.

Sadly, we are noticing an increase in unkind behaviours online, particularly via social media platforms and would appreciate your support in policing your child’s mobile phone by regularly looking through their phones with them and reminding them how to behave respectfully towards one another.

This week the students will focus on anti – bullying during PSHCE and we will be encouraging them to think about how we can unite to challenge bullying both online and offline.  For excellent advice for parents and carers to help keep children safe online, visit Helping Children Deal with Bullying & Cyberbullying | NSPCC.
