Hurting You Illustration

When you are in school, someone around your own age might try to hurt you. If a friend or someone you know hurts you, or tries to hurt you, you need to tell someone right away. You should speak to an adult you trust – like a teacher or a classroom assistant. If a teacher or classroom assistant know what is making you feel bad, he or she can start to help make things better.

The adults who look after you should never hurt or try to harm you. They should help you to stay happy, safe and well.
Adults are not allowed to punish you by hitting you with things like slippers, belts or canes. They are not allowed to punish you in a way that is too rough or that might injure you.

If someone is doing any of these things to you it is not your fault. Tell a person you trust, like your teacher or classroom assistant. You can also call Childline on 0800 1111.
