  • Physical – hurting a person’s body (e.g. shoving, poking, throwing things, spitting, slapping, choking, punching, kicking, beating, stabbing, pulling hair, biting, scratching, scraping, pinching, threatened violence,  or damaging possessions)
  • Verbal – saying or writing mean things (e.g. name calling including homophobic language, taunting, nasty teasing, insults, spreading malicious gossip)
  • Emotional/Non-verbal – often accompanies physical or verbal bullying.  (e.g. rude gestures, ignoring/excluding/isolating a pupil)
  • Cyberbullying – involves using social media and the internet to spread rumours or post pictures/videos or fake websites/profiles.  Also involves sending malicious emails or text messages on mobile phones.
