Bullies can make your life a misery on the journey to and from school but there are things you and your parents/carers can do about it.
On the school bus, try to sit near the driver, or if it's an ordinary bus, by other adults. If you have to walk part of the way, and you're afraid of being ambushed, then vary your route, try to leave home and school a bit later or a bit earlier, or see if you can walk with other people who live near you, even if they're older or younger.
Many streets, shops and businesses now have CCTV so if you're attacked in the street the police may be able to get filmed evidence.
Schools often refuse to take action on bullying if it happens off the premises but they do...
Lots of people tell Bullying UK that they get bullied out of school, often by people they know from school but sometimes by people who live nearby.
If the people bullying you are at school with you then your parents need to talk to your class teacher or head of year about what's happening in case trouble spills over at school.
Although schools can take action over bullying on the journey to and from school they will be less keen to do anything about bullying that happens at the weekend or in the holidays.
Stay safe in the street
