Bullying in Primary Schools

Incidence of Bullying

Of the 141 respondents from a total sample of 143, 92 reported that they had not been bullied, while 109 had not been bullied outside of school. However, as 33 children claimed to have been bullied at school, it is an issue to be addressed. As bullying occurs both inside and outside of school, it is important to view the issue as belonging to the community at large. Consequently, initiatives to address the subject should not be confined to the school.
