Cyber Bullying

This KS2 PSHE quiz will help you differentiate between cyber bullying and playground bullying. It will also help you understand what you should do if you suspect you or someone you know is being cyber bullied.

Cyber bullying is a specific type of bullying that takes place online. Due to the nature of cyber bullying, some people do not realise they are being a bully or are being bullied - but if the behaviour online is repeatedly done with the desire to cause emotional distress to another person then it is still bullying. Cyber bullying is just as serious as bullying that takes place on the street and in the playground and it must be stopped. Both the police and schools have policies and procedures for dealing with cyber bullying to make sure that the actions are reported, the behaviours are stopped and the victim is supported. Just because you are unable to see if a person is upset by a message or a picture being shared, doesn’t mean they aren't upset. It is also important to understand that by liking cruel comments or sharing mean videos online, you are contributing to the bullying even if you did not post it in the first place.
