The Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning, Michael Russell, replied that the Scottish Government published a national approach to anti-bullying for Scotlandís children and young people in November 2010, which was developed in partnership with the Scottish Anti-Bullying Steering Group. The guidance is aimed at local authorities, schools and all organisations working with children and young people in Scotland.
