What School Staff Need to Know About Cyberbullying
Publish date: 13.11.19
The Diana Award definition of bullying is “repeated negative behaviour that is intended to make others feel upset, uncomfortable or unsafe.” Cyberbullying is bullying which takes place online. It can involve anything from sending messages to posting offensive comments to uploading and sharing private or embarrassing photos. It is classed as an indirect form of bullying when compared to verbal or physical bullying, given it usually takes place through a digital device. However, for those experiencing bullying behaviour, the consequences can be just as serious and have far reaching effects.
