A ‘HOT SPOT” is somewhere in the school where bullying is occurring most frequently. It could be a hallway, the teather ball court, or even a particular bathroom.
If you’ve implemented the Incident Report, you already have a pretty good idea of where these hot spots are. If not, your principal should know from the verbal reports he/she has gotten from the teachers.
The solution? Rearrange the staff so that these hot spots are covered by adults. It really is that simple. Kids are way less likely to bully when an adult is around.
That’s it for now. Take a look at all my other Bully Prevention Tips on my blog.
I appreciate your comments.
