Bullying is a very serious social-pathological problem. It is a form of aggression which is often encountered in particular in the school environment, whether at elementary of high schools. At present bullying is not only associated with puberty, but also is a problem among pupils of younger age. The aim of this research was to create and test a reliable research tool to determine what children perceive as bullying, what their direct experience with bullying is and where they most often encounter bullying. Another aim was to determine who should deal with the occurrence of bullying in school. The sampling (N = 1147; return n = 913) consisted of pupils from 10 elementary schools Banska Bystrica, Slovakia (from grades 6 to 9, 60 classes together). The questionnaire contained 5 questions requiring open-ended and direct answers. From the first three questions we learned what children perceive as bullying, what forms of bullying they have encountered and in what types of places children have encountered bullying most often. Questions 4 and 5 were focused on intervention and prevention of bullying. The study will include output from the first three questions.
