Children who are experiencing School Bullying or being victimized because of their race, appearance or disability need help from teachers, parents or carers to tackle the problem. We've found a collection of free printable anti-bullying worksheets, leaflets and games which parents and teachers can use to help kids deal with the distress that arises from being targeted by a bully or a gang of bullies.
Some resources use colorful cartoon style pictures and images to get the message across whilst others may introduce the idea of role play or group classroom discussions and activities. Either way, we hope that the following printable worksheets will help any child that is being regularly teased, targeted or injured.
