Bullying can happen anywhere and be about almost anything. We will never tolerate bullying at GFS. You must report any incidents of bullying via this website or directly to a member of staff so that we can support victims and deal with the situation immediately.


Peer on peer abuse


Peer on peer abuse occurs when a young person is exploited, bullied and/ or harmed by their peers who are the same or a similar age. Children can also abuse other children; it is not just adults. There are five main categories of peer on peer abuse:


  1. Bullying (including cyber bullying), including racist and religious bullying, sexual, sexist and transphobic bullying, homophobic bullying and disablist bullying.
  2. Child sexual exploitation - exploitative relationships involving sexual activity where there is an imbalance of power between the two participants.
  3. Harmful sexual behaviour (including sexting) - this may include inappropriate sexual language, sexually touching another person or sexual assault.
  4. Gang activity and youth violence.
  5. Domestic violence within teenage relationships -this may include insults, coercion, social sabotage, sexual harassment and threats/ acts of physical or sexual abuse.

If you or someone you know meet one or more of the  above please report it via this website or tell a member of satff we can deal with the situation immediately.
