Bullying is a prevalent, destructive issue that plagues many schools all over the world today. Most researches focus on bullying in general, in all school settings. In light of this, the researcher decided to conduct a study focusing on the bullying situation in primary school aged children, in three specific school environments the coeducational setting, the all girls setting and the all boys setting.

Data was gathered from three different school settings and compared how the data varies in terms of teacher perceptions, types of bullying which usually occur, anti-bullying strategies and programs. Questionnaires were used to aid the process of data gathering. Data acquired was qualitatively categorized and analyzed.

Results showed that teachers and guidance counselors, regardless of school setting, had a common definition of bullying, participants also shared similar attitudes and strategies towards bullying, only one school had a formal, structured anti-bullying program.

Results of the study imply that while teachers and guidance conselors were aware of the presence and occurence of bullying in their schools, schools did not address bullying directly and is often seen as special case which should be dealt with only on a case-to-case basis.
