This week in preparation for adulthood we have discussed bullying. We considered who bullies, reasons why they bully, stereotypes and consequences for both the bully and victim.

We related this to learning agreements that all learners sign at the start of the academic year. Learners agree that everyone has equal opportunities and that everyone is expected to act in a reasonable manner at all times. This relates directly to work placed policies of bullying and harassment so a valuable life lesson.
