Being exposed to bullying increases the risk of severe negative consequences related to mental health problems and school performance. However, there is a lack of research regarding how school’s follow-up with children and adolescents who were previously exposed to bullying to prevent or reduce this risk. This study explored key aspects regarding how schools can follow-up with bullied children and adolescents. Semi-structured individual interviews were conducted with young adults previously exposed to bullying. Four men and six women aged 18–29 years old. Transcribed interview data were analysed by qualitative content analysis. Findings indicated a need for planned follow-up work in schools at both individual and organisational levels. Core components for such work are suggested to be knowledge, authoritative classroom management, communication and collaboration inside and outside of the school. Implications for further research are studies of how schools can effectively detect and support these pupils through systematic efforts in schools.
