Bullies are very cunning and are expert at getting away with it.
We all know that bullying goes on in and out of school. Parents, carers, teachers and other professionals have a duty to take action if they suspect or discover that children are being bullied. Bullying can be face to face or through social media on platforms like Facebook, Instagram or Whats App messaging.
