The purpose of this research was to identify the level of mobbing behaviour faced by teachers and managers working in primary schools, their responses to such behaviour and the difference in these responses according to the gender variable. The sample of the research consists of a total of 1,316 teachers and managers including 691 men and 625 women from 21 provinces of Turkey. The data collection instrument for the research was prepared by the researcher (except for the NAQ scale). The NAQ scale was used to identify the level of mobbing behaviour faced by teachers and managers. The frequency, cross-tab, chi-square, Varimax factor reversal and t-test techniques were used in the research. The results were tested at the level of p<.05. Following the research, it was found that 4.1 % of the teachers and managers working in primary schools faced mobbing behaviour every day and that the male teachers and managers encounter mobbing more than the female teachers and managers. In addition, it was revealed that two thirds of the men and one third of the women perceived mobbing behaviour as normal.
