Our research is about bullying in the superior cycle of primary education. We have developed a general questionnaire from a bibliographic review of various studies where they have used different tests. Based on this information we have developed a questionnaire. This instrument has been used to analyze the perception of superior cycle children about bullying and the school scenarios that produce most of these behaviors. It has also been useful for us to study different types of bullying (physical, verbal and social exclusion), the most usual types of bullying and to analyze the responses we get from the students by gender and course (5 and 6). We note that among boys there is more physical bullying, while in girls verbal and social exclusion predominate. Course differences have only been detected in social exclusion, being higher in 6th class than in 5th. The majority of bullying behaviors take place in the playground, followed by the classroom when the teacher is not there. Finally, based on our results, we have developed a psycho-educational policy proposal to improve coexistence at school and other educational spaces.
