hi, my name is pandaisy,

hi, I'm pandaisy and I'm in year eleven, I have been struggling at school for a while but recently things have gone from bad to a lot worse. I've always found it tricky to make friends but when I managed to find some in year ten I was over the moon, even if they didn't always include me. I became closer friends with a few people in this group but not long ago one of them starting being not so nice to me which has since developed into bullying. When I brought this up with the person at school rather than support me the rest of my friends decided to support the bully. The bully has since made up other lies to get other friends I've managed to make on their side too. As the weeks have gone on a couple of the friends I made in year ten asked to be friends again, of course, I agreed happily but they're still too scared to talk to me when the bully is around. I have since started to struggle in nearly all of my lessons due to this and after looking at other schools if I were to move I would have to go into year ten and repeat a year. I'm a bit unsure of what to do, any advice or coping strategies would be welcomed.

    That's awful. You don't deserve to be bullied and that must be really hard for you.

    How would you feel about repeating year ten if you moved schools? That doesn't sound ideal, yet it could get you away from the bullying so it might be a hard choice to make? <3

    Do you think it could help to talk things through with a teacher or relative, if you haven't already?

    Sending hugs x

    Hi pandaisy, welcome😊

    I'm really sorry you're going through difficult times right now. I understand how you feel, secondary school was really difficult for me too, especially Year 11.

    Are there any staff at your school who you could talk to? I know how difficult it is to sort out bullying situations, however they can help you in other ways too, like having a quiet room for you to sit in to get away from bullies, for example.

    We're all ready to listen to you when you feel ready. We'll support you! Sending love and good vibes your way <3
