The group involved consisted of two girls and four boys, from different classes. They knew each other but were not close friends. The bullying took place in the school playground and on the way to and from school. It was in the form of physical attacks as well as name calling and had been taking place for three weeks. As school counsellor, the bullying incident was reported to me by the Head of Year. He had found out about the bullying from the target, who had bruising.
