This resource is part of a series of worksheets on bullying.
This particular worksheet is designed to teach pupils how to stand up to bullying by themselves, without involving an adult. This is in recognition of the fact that, despite professionals’ best efforts, some children may refuse to report bullying and that an adult is not always present.
The worksheet contains a series of story boards in which a bully makes an offensive comment to the victim. The pupil is asked to think of things the victim could say in response. An example is provided in the first instance. The hope is that, by designing and rehearsing responses in an artificial setting, the pupil is prepared if they face them in real life.
The story boards aim to include types of insults that children commonly say to one another. If the pupil is particularly sensitive to teasing about something not included in the resource, there is space to add their own examples at the end.
Ages 10 upwards
1-1 or small group settings
