How does a school deal with bullying? Should verbal and physical bullying be treated the same? Is one always worse than the other? How should complaints from parents be handled? What if it is the teachers who are being bullied?
Ted Wragg conducts an imaginary case study with the help of eight panellists. His story follows the progress of two pupils from primary to secondary school. The dilemmas arise in determining who is the real bully and who is the real victim.
Panellists include Secondary Deputy Head Susan Tranter (Matthew Arnold School in Oxfordshire), Andrea Smith (Head of Year at Capital City Academy), Des O’Shea (primary Headteacher) and Dawn Steele (secondary teacher).
