Abstract

Many relationships are established among pupils in the classroom. Bullying is a complex phenomenon that requires attention and active participation of all professional workers due to its negative impact. The most important factor in increasing the frequency of bullying is a pupil’s status. The main goal of our research is to identify the relationship between the pupil’s status and the frequency in the role of bullying. The sample represents 65 pupils from two primary schools. We have distributed questionnaire, which have had contain a sociometric test and the questionnaire School Bullying Scales. When processing the data, we used descriptive statistics: Kruskal-Wallis test, Eta correlation coefficient and Cronbach coefficient of reliability. We have found that the neglected, rejected and controversial pupils were more in the role of the bystanders and the victim. The findings have shown that there is a relationship between the pupil's status and the frequency in the role of the bystanders and the victim. Our findings cannot be generalized, but they give further research guidelines with the purpose of reducing bullying.

Keywords: role, connection and prevention of bullying.
