I don't know if it's that simple.

If a school owes you a duty of care not to be bullied during school hours (which it jolly well does) but fails to do so then it has failed to check the environment in which bullying can prosper.

Bullying outside of school is surely an extension of what a bully "can get away with" inside school. So, a failure on the part of a school to check bullying during school time MIGHT lead a bully to go away with the idea that "well, it's OK to bully in school, so it must be OK to continue outside school"

If a school has any duty to teach what is and what isn't socially acceptable, and I believe it does, then it would have failed.

Of course, I don't know. But, I'd be interested to see the results of a student taking a suit against a school because he/she was bullied by the school's pupils outside of school time. Would make an interesting piece of litigation.

i feel so sorry for anyone that has been bullying. I guess i was really lucky because my school didn't have a bullying problem. It was a normal comp with 1500 odd people but I think one of the reasons why there wasn't really that much bullying was because the youngest year was year 9 and so there wasn't a huge gap between ages etc. I was really schocked when i got to uni and found out how badly some of my friends had been treated at school. I'm amazed that some people can be so cruel

We don't have many bullying problems at our school, which is an all-boys by the way. We have a strict anti-bullying policy and the school takes these kind of things very seriously; I myself am a high-profile prefect and am an anti-bullying counsellor. I have only dealt with one incident.

I was bullied all my life...and although initially it felt like hell id wake up every day dreading going to school, i actually started not to care about what people said and thought and i think as a result i am a stronger and more tolerant person. And the irony goes that all those that bullied me sent me Christmas cards of apologies and are now really nice to me...so much so that im actually quite popular at school...and all the really mean bullies who made my life a living hell are no longer liked and are themselves bullied...one of the girls that used to taunt me so badly even phoned me up once crying down the phone saying how i was her only friend....err yeah whatever! SCORE!

What do you think?
I think it's terrible! Especially in secondary! our skool's so much better know (okay it's been consistently one of the best in the borough) but before no matter how much you tried to help the victim by speaking up to the bullies (as the teachers refused to get invloved) you were incriminated yourself!

yes it's fun since you don't have to suffer the loneliness and anguish the victims feel. A former classmate commited suicide because she couldn't cope with the incessant bullying.

there has been a lot of research to suggest that bully's aren't quite "all there" if you get what I mean. Apparetly they cant distinguish between people who are bing mean or not, which is why they pick on people and uch like because they feel like they are bein bullied.

I'm not sure if i agree with this cos i knew a lot of people who were like Boygenius (bullying is well fun) and seemed to enjoy tormenting people.

it's not what they think surely. They may have thought it a better way out since their life in reality seems like a living hell. People commit suicde when they're desperate, terribly alone in their misery, scared, andf feel they have no one to turn to. I'm still angry that the bullies got away with it. I hate seeing their faces knowing they destroyed somebody's life because they got a sick kick out of it.
