Bullying on a school bus can be easily missed. Drivers are busy concentrating on the road and are not able to supervise the children. However, it is important that drivers are aware of all signs of aggressive behaviour. They have a responsibility to not only ensure the children are safely transported to and from school, but they are also responsible for making sure they are safe during the journey.
Bullying is often classed as an in-school issue, however, a lot of the bullying of children and young people and subsequent fighting occurs on buses. Unfortunately, due to a lack of training, drivers are often ill-equipped to handle such incidents effectively.
