a national approach to anti-bullying for Scotland's children and young people, 17/11/09 - 26/02/10 [S]

This consultation paper sets out a draft national approach to anti-bullying in Scotland. The purpose of this is to propose an approach to anti-bullying in Scotland for children and young people; outline broadly contributions to this approach by sectors and stakeholders nationally and highlight the role of the Scottish Anti-Bullying Steering Group (SABS). Consultation to 26 February 2010.

This paper has been developed by SABS and includes a draft vision, aims and a proposed approach to anti-bullying for Scotland's children and young people. It summarises very broadly what is being done at a national level in Scotland to prevent and tackle bullying.

This consultation seeks views so that areas for development and improvement can be identified. In particular, it provides an opportunity to seek the views of other agencies and professionals working with children and young people on a national vision, aims and approach to anti-bullying in Scotland and to consider:

  • contributions at all levels to this approach;
  • strengths and gaps
  • what more needs to be done in the future at national and local levels;
  • how we can all contribute to this;
  • the role of the SABS in overseeing and co-ordinating this.
