Bully Prevention
Bully Prevention


All of the Hempfield elementary and middle schools have initiated a Bully Prevention Program. A student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students (Olweus 1986; 1991). The following four rules form the core of this program:


·        We shall not bully other students.

·        We shall try to help students who are bullied.

·        We shall make a point to include students who become easily left out.

·        When we know somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.
