Cyberbullying is when a person or group of people uses the internet, mobile phone, online games or any kind of digital technology to threaten, tease or humiliate someone else. Cyberbullying can be very serious. It can make you feel scared, upset and embarrassed. You might feel like it will never end. No one has the right to make you feel this way. We want you to know there are things you can do to make it stop.
Think about talking to someone that you trust like a parent or teacher. At Lordswood Girls’ School you can report any instances of cyberbullying to your Review Tutor or to Mrs McKenzie, our Intervention and Behaviour Manager. When you have talked to someone about your concerns you will feel less alone and more confident to deal with the situation.
Remember to keep a copy of any abusive texts, emails, comments or messages that you receive and record the date and time that they were sent. With cyberbullying there is always a trail and keeping records can be very useful when it comes to reporting the bullying. Try not to reply to any messages you receive. It can encourage the bullies and end up upsetting you more.
