A bullying survey for elementary school students should include questions such as "Are you ever bullied at school?", "Where does the bullying usually occur?" and "How often are you bullied?" Another appropriate question is "Did you receive help from an adult after reporting the bullying?"
Research indicates that young children often fail to tell their parents or teachers that they are being bullied. Therefore, it is important for schools to teach students what bullying is, help them understand that bullying is inappropriate behavior and inform students to tell an adult when they experience bullying at school. Bullying surveys can be used to identify the most common location of bullying leading schools to provide more adult supervision in those areas.
