DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS:

In February of 2010 in twelve schools of Lithuania which participate in the project "Safe School", an online survey was conducted. Students from first to twelve grades answered questions. 4,153 respondents participated in the study.
When asked how they feel in the school the majority, a total of 86.5% students, said they feel safe at school. 47.6% of all students never had experiences of bullying in school.
Thus, although the number of students that have never experienced bullying is high, but there is a higher percentage of students who have experienced bullying - slightly less than half of the respondents.
Most common form of school bullying is the nicknaming and gossip (representing 30-37%). It is also significant that almost a quarter of students feel ignored. Meanwhile, physical bullying -stuff damaging, money or items robbing, beating- suffer a lower proportion of respondents.
Students often react in some way bullying. However, a small part of the students take no action when they are bullied. In most cases students are likely to show that bullying does not bother them at all.
