What is Bullying?

Bullying is defined as repeated behaviour over time which is intended to hurt someone either emotionally or physically and is often aimed at certain people because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, social or economic background, disability or SEN need. It might be motivated by actual differences between children, or perceived differences - Department for Education-Preventing and tackling bullying.
