While the resources available on this website are for teachers only and can only be accessed by teachers who are registered with us, sometimes non-teachers find us while surfing the net in search of help about bullying. With this in mind we have included here contact details of two organisations pupils/children may wish to contact in an emergency as well as brief advice for students, parents and teachers.

EMERGENCY CONTACT FOR STUDENTS/CHILDREN: If you need someone to talk to you may wish to call Childline on 1800 66 66 66 (free phone)

EMERGENCY CONTACT FOR STUDENTS/CHILDREN: "What ever you are going through, whether you think it is big or small, you don’t have to bottle it up. At Samaritans we offer confidential, non-judgemental support 24 hours a day. Phone: 1850-609090 (Lo-call) Email: jo@samaritans.org"

Students: If you are being bullied in school or if you know of someone else who is being bullied please take the vital first step of telling a teacher you trust or asking a parent or a school friend to do so for you. Bullying can be brought to an end without making matters worse for you or anyone involved if you take that vital first step. Please also tell the teacher about our website which can help her/him to deal with your problem effectively.

Parents: If you are concerned about a change in your child's general mood or behaviour, for example if s/he becomes uncharacteristically withdrawn, touchy, angry, demands more attention than usual or has a serious decline in school workrate, it may not be "just hormones." Your child may be experiencing bullying. To put your mind at ease please contact the school and make teachers aware of your concerns. They can then investigate and if there is bullying taking place they can bring the bullying to an end without making matters worse for your child or anyone else. Please also tell the teachers about our website which can help them to deal with your problem effectively.

Teachers: Below are links to video clips, many on YouTube, used in our awareness-raising exercises for both primary and secondary schools. They can be shown in "full screen" mode using data-projector and screen or electronic whiteboard. A fast broadband internet link is needed  to show them directly from YouTube or other websites - please talk to your school's computer network expert about this and about making YouTube available to you when you need it.  Alternatively, since some school networks block out YouTube altogether, our Notice Board page offers instructions to convert YouTube video clips into regular video clips that can be played on Windows Media Player or similar player software, so you can put these converted video clips on your computer or on a USB memory stick and show them from there.

"Accompanying Worksheets" that help students to actively focus on some of the key messages in these video clips and learn from them are presented in the Second-Level/Awareness and Primary/Awareness sections of this website.  If you print out the worksheets and photocopy them in advance you can use them in class while showing the video clips directly from the links below.

PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.4.1 - - This exercise involves 12 short animated video "webisodes" about bullying, linked below and referred to in Exercise 1.4.1 in the Primary/Awareness section of this website. This wonderful resource is available, from the - stopbullying.gov website - a federal government website managed by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. The individual "webisodes" we wish to focus on are presented in order, BELOW, so they can be shown in sequence more easily in schools. Each "webisode" takes about two minutes. When they are shown in sequence stories unfold that involve bullying but these ultimately lead to happy endings when bystanders act. Each "webisode" can be preceded by reading its introductory sentence to its right. Watching each of these "webisodes" at least twice and completing the matching section of the Accompanying Worksheet in the Primary/Awareness section of this website can help pupils to better realise that bullying is hurtful and unacceptable and that if if they see or know of a pupil being bullied they should intervene on behalf of that targeted pupil.

PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.4.2 - "When The Going Gets Scruff" YouTube video. A matching question sheet for teachers can be found in the "Primary / Awareness" section of this website.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.4.4 - "The Power of One - School Video Sample." This YouTube video presentation consists of three clips: (a) Volleyball - all laugh repeatedly at weak player until a talented Mexican boy arrives and challenges them. (b) A boy is a victim of extortion and verbal and other bullying until a big new boy takes his side. (c) A girl left the school after the first day because someone began hassling her and others followed and were mean to her. In the first two clips positive intervention made a positive difference. In the third, lack of such intervention and "jumping on the bandwagon" led to a bad outcome. A strong message here is don't be a passive bystander but intervene to make things better. This video could be shown, twice, before doing a "Regular Class Survey" from the Primary/Incidents section of this website to find out if there is any bullying taking place in the group.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.4.5 - "Bully (Amazing Short Animation film)" from YouTube shows how upsetting the deliberate repetition of even low-level bullying can be. Watching this video at least twice and completing the Accompanying Worksheet in the Primary/Awareness section of this website can help pupils to probe how they feel as the story unfolds and how the targeted pupil might feel. The ending is not ideal. Pupils can be asked what would have been a better way to handle the situation from an earlier stage.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.4.6 - "Supporting Difference." This short YouTube video clip from family.ca for www.bullying.org is very powerful. Everyone is different but everyone is equal in value. It can be cool to be different in many ways but it is not cool to isolate or treat someone badly because s/he seems different. To continue to do this is bullying. Research shows that when observers intervene to prevent bullying, as in this short video clip, there are great benefits for everyone involved. Watching this video at least twice and completing the Accompanying Worksheet" in the Primary/Awareness section of this website can help pupils to analyse the film and come to a clearer understanding of bullying and its unacceptability and the need to intervene to bring it to an end.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.5.2 - "Anti-Cyberbullying (FCF Youth Version)" - Watching this anti-cyber-bullying YouTube video at least twice and completing the Accompanying Worksheet in the Primary/Awareness section can help pupils to understand that cyber-bullying is hurtful and that if they know it is happening they should "take a stand" against it and not be mere "bystanders."
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.5.3 - "Antibullying PSA: The Price of Silence" is a short video that focuses on bystanders who see a boy being bullied. Some, hoping for entertainment, call for a fight. Others know this behaviour is wrong and are very uncomfortable with it. When one boy intervenes and others quickly follow the bystanders disperse and the bullying situation is brought to an end. Watching this video at least twice and completing the Accompanying Worksheet in the Primary/Awareness section of this website can help pupils to understand that if they observe bullying behaviour they should intervene on behalf of the targeted pupil.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.5.4 - "BackMeUp - Anti-cyberbullying Community Service Announcement." Watching this anti-cyber-bullying YouTube video at least twice and completing the Accompanying Worksheet in the Primary/Awareness section can help pupils to understand that if they know someone is being cyber-bullied they should not ignore it but should speak out.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.5.6 - "Talent Show - Cyberbullying Prevention Commercial." Watching this YouTube video at least twice and then completing the accompanying Worksheet in the Primary/Awareness section can help pupils to understand that making nasty or insulting comments about someone online is as unacceptable as saying them directly to someone's face.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.6.1 - "How to UnMake A Bully" Volume 1 is an excellent and very well acted video production lasting nearly 27 minutes, available on YouTube, in which primary (elementary) school pupils consider how best to respond to the bullying situations they see. This film contains a lot of useful analysis and good anti-bullying messages - especially that conscientious observers of bullying behaviour, rather than standing idly by, try to intervene in a positive, kind and respectful way to make it stop. This film contains too much to take in on one viewing (and too much for younger pupils) but could be shown to pupils aged 10 years or older and shown again a year later. A short period of discussion could be allowed/led by the teacher afterwards.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.6.2 - "Bystanders - How to UnMake A Bully, Volume 2" This is an excellent and very well acted video production lasting nearly 29 minutes, available on YouTube, in which primary (elementary) school pupils work out the skills ("powers") they need to recognise bullying behaviour and to respond positively to it. Like its predecessor, "How to UnMake a Bully" (Primary/Awareness Exercise 1.6.1 ) this film contains a lot of useful analysis and good anti-bullying messages - especially that conscientious observers of bullying behaviour, rather than standing idly by, try to intervene in a positive, kind and respectful way to make it stop. This film could could be shown to pupils aged 10 years or older and shown again a year later. A short period of discussion could be allowed/led by the teacher afterwards focusing on the "powers" pupils need to help in bullying situations and the fact that every pupil has them already, without dressing up, but needs to use them.
PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.6.3 - "Cyber-Bullying." Watching this anti-cyber-bullying YouTube video at least twice and completing the Accompanying Worksheet in the Primary/Awareness section can help pupils to understand that bullying words can hurt but that you can take a stand against them once you know better and you can report them so they can be dealt with.

PRIMARY LEVEL Exercise 1.6.6 - "Dear Parents" short video clip on YouTube encourages parents to teach tolerance. A number of children in a row combine to ask parents not to teach them intolerance, bigotry and hatred but rather the reverse. Bullying often focuses on a particular difference as a negative thing, (though we are all different, which is great and interesting), and uses that difference to "justify" treating someone unfairly. Showing this to parents (perhaps with exercises 26(a) and 26(b) in the Primary/Awareness section of this website) on a school parents' night could help them avoid inadvertently supporting racist bullying through what they say.
SECOND LEVEL Exercise 2.1.3 - First Year (Age 13) - "Childnet International - Cyberbullying."

While this video clip makes no judgement, either positive or negative, about being LGBT it gives a strong anti-homophobia message.
