Understanding Bullying

Before we can address Bullying, children need to understand what Bullying is, and what actions are Bullying behaviour. More often than not Bullying is perceived as a physical act, whereas verbal Bullying such as name-calling is considered a ‘joke’. It is for this reason that the JAGBullyProof programme focuses on exploring the many behaviours associated with Bullying and explanation as to why these actions are not acceptable.

Empathy & Feelings

Empathy is a key skill which has become lost over the years, with focus moving onto the ‘self’ over others. Hearing the different behaviours associated with Bullying is one level of understanding, however our JAGBullyProof programme sets out to create a deeper emotional level of understanding. This is achieved through discussions around emotions when one is Bullied, as well as playing an empathy focused game highlighting the benefits of inclusion versus the pitfalls of exclusion.

HOW TO STAND UP AND GET YOUR POWER BACK

v

1. POWER OF 'I'

In Step 1, we look Assertion versus Aggression focusing on the intention of reclaiming ones Power over inciting Revenge. Learning to be assertive includes the need to learn about the power of certain words, body language, tone, pitch… This is taught and replicated in an action based exercise.

2. POWER OF WALKING AWAY

In Step 2, we tackle one of the biggest perception struggles children of today go through being, if you walk away your are weak, scared, a loser… This social stigma prevents many children from being assertive. We unpack this perception and refocus the reasons for walking away into a choice of Power.

3. POWER OF SPEAKING UP

In Step 3, we look at the importance of ‘asking for help’ for a trusted adult. This usually involves addressing trust issues between pupils and teachers based in previous experiences, and has prevented children speaking out and giving up on help. This is an extremely important step for children currently experiencing Bullying, needing reassurance that help is available to them.

Actions of a Superhero

Everyone would love to be a Superhero! And no one wants to be the Villain! However we cannot act like the Villain and still hope to be the Superhero. Our JAGBullyProof Superhero with detachable armour is used to illustrate how one becomes less of a Superhero the more one acts like a Villain, and the possibility of becoming a Superhero by regaining armour through our actions. This gives children a cognitive link between their actions and how it effects who they are, giving them the responsibility of who they want to be.

Questions & Revision

Questions, both from or to pupils, are an important aspect of learning as it forces consideration of what has been learned. Using an unstructured revision and questioning system, jumping randomly between various aspects of the session, we have seen amazing recall forming a cohesive BullyProof experience.
