          Objective To examine the status of bullying behaviors and psychological resilience of primary school students and the relationship between the two, and to provide references for related interventions.

          Methods Olweus bullying questionnaire and adolescent psychological resilience scale were used to select students in grades 4–6 for questionnaire survey.

          Results Primary school students who were bullied, bullied others, double-involved and uninvolved accounted 33.3%, 48.7%, 15.3%, and 2.7%. There were statistically significant differences in bullying in different dimensions of different genders, grades, and previous suicidal thoughts ( P<0.05); there were statistically significant differences in the bullied status of only children, divorced parents, and different caregivers ( t/F = 3.64, 2.65, 6.62, P<0.05); The status of bullying behavior of students in the class was better than that of ordinary students ( t = –2.18, P<0.05); senior students have a higher level of positive cognition ( F =8.71, P<0.05); mental toughness of urban students better than rural areas ( t = –2.20, P<0.05); students with divorced parents had poor levels of emotional control, family support, and psychological toughness ( t = –4.60, –3.92, –3.44, P<0.05); class cadres focused on focus, positive cognition, family support, interpersonal assistance, and psychological resilience were better than ordinary students ( t = 5.19, 6.43, 5.64, 4.13, 6.58, P<0.05); students with parental care had better levels of target concentration, emotional control, family support, interpersonal assistance, and psychological resilience ( t = 4.59, 8.68, 8.76, 12.35, 13.45, P<0.05); the level of psychological resilience of students was low ( t = 15.90, P<0.05). Correlation analysis shows that there was a negative correlation between bullying behavior and psychological resilience of all pupils ( P<0.01), regression analysis showed that bullying behavior may had a negative prediction of mental resilience ( F = 128.37, R 2 =0.12, P<0.01).

          Conclusion The current situation of bullying behavior and mental resilience of grade 4–6 students is worrisome, and it is urgent to improve the current situation of bullying and psychological resilience of primary school students.
