Support to the child

• children should know who will listen to and support them

• systems should be established to open the door to children wishing to talk about

bullying or any other issue that affects them

impairment) need to be identified and addressed at the outset to enable children to

approach adults for help

• children should have access to helpline numbers

• anyone who reports an incident of bullying will be listened to carefully and be

supported

listening carefully to all those involved

• children being bullied will be supported and assistance given to uphold their right to

play and live in a safe environment which allows their healthy development

• those who bully will be supported and encouraged to stop bullying

• sanctions for those bullying others that involve long periods of isolation, or which

diminish and make individuals look or feel foolish in front of others, will be avoided.
