Abstract

The paper provides an estimation of the expansion of violence and ill-treatment of children at school. We explore the scale of the physical impact that students have on each other and the teacher on the students at school, as well as the moral pressure in the system of student-student and student- teacher relationships. The system of relationships in school is very important for the further formation of the personality, therefore, school violence (bullying) requires urgent attention, as it is the situation at school that in many ways determines the further development and the formation of personality traits. The research sample comprises 289 pupils of secondary schools at the age of 11-18 years. The main method of research is ICAST-C questionnaire. The results show that the vast majority of children experience various forms of physical and psychological violence, as well as callous disregard of their needs. As a result of the study it was found that in most cases, school violence takes the form of psychological and/or physical violence. In the schools, the most common psychological abuse is the one that causes a child 's emotional stress, humiliates him and lowers his self-esteem.
