What is Race and Faith Targeted Bullying?

Race and faith targeted bullying is bullying that is perceived by the victim or any other person to be racist or bullying that targets a person’s faith[1].

The relationship between racist incidents and racist bullying

All incidents of racist bullying in schools constitute a racist incident. However not all racist incidents would constitute racist bullying. To determine if racist incident/s are bullying, it is important to have a shared whole-school understanding of what bullying is. The Anti-Bullying Alliance defines bullying as:

‘the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. It can happen face to face or online.’

[1] Based on definition of racism from Stephen Lawrence Inquiry in 1999 by MacPherson
