Advice for our Pupils

  • If someone is hurting you or your friends, it is not your fault.
  • You are not alone. There are people who can help you and stop others from  making you feel hurt or scared.
  • You may be frightened of the person hurting you or your friends but there are things you can do to get help and make it better.

 You should

  • Tell someone you trust that you're being hurt or know someone who is being hurt. Your friends, teachers, parents, grandparents or other members of your family may be able to help.
  • Let people help to make things better by stopping the person from hurting you or your friends.

 You shouldn't

  • Don't feel embarrassed or alone.
  • Don't feel that it is your fault or that you are to blame for someone hurting you — anybody who tells you that is a liar.
  • Don't keep it a secret that someone is hurting you or your friends.
  • Don't feel afraid — people are there to help you.
