A 16-year-old girl talks about the bullying that ensued as a result of her haircut when she started secondary school, in this PSHE lesson and assembly starter for primary and secondary pupils.

The girl explains how an adventurous hairstyle she had cut as she started secondary school caused her to suffer terrible bullying at the hands of other pupils.

She was confident and popular at her primary school, and was only bullied when she moved to secondary school, highlighting how the transition from primary to secondary can sometimes be fraught for pupils.

This video can be used to start discussions on questions including; why are people bullied because of their appearance, and does this happen a lot?
