A National Approach to Anti-Bullying for Scotland's Children and Young People, 16/11/10 [S]

The Scottish Government has published a national approach to anti-bullying developed by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Anti-Bullying Steering Group.

The national approach, developed by the Scottish Anti-bullying Steering Group - the body which promotes anti-bulling work in Scotland - will:

  • Create a national framework for tackling bullying by promoting a common vision and aims, and ensuring that all agencies and communities are working together, in a consistent way to deal with the problem
  • Clarify how through a range of roles and responsibilities everyone can be involved in preventing and tackling bullying
  • Define bullying in terms of the behaviour involved, reflecting the fact that it can occur in a range of settings, can come from children, young people and adults and can occur in cyberspace but recognise that in essence, the behaviour is the same and requires similar prevention methods

For full details see A National Approach to Anti-Bullying for Scotland's Children and Young People which is available from the Scottish Government website.
