Update of Children's Services Anti-Bullying Policy

Closed 12 Mar 2018

Opened 29 Jan 2018


Children's Services are currently in the process of updating our Anti-Bullying policies and procedures. Our current policies were last revisited in 2012 and can be found at the bottom of this page. The aims of this policy update are to:

  • merge the three exisiting policies into one policy
  • ensure robust and appropriate responses are deployed in schools to prevent and respond to bullying behaviour
  • to have a consistent approach for all schools in recording incidents of bullying.

For this purpose, we are seeking a range of views from parents, pupils and staff as to how we engage with incidents of bullying behaviour where they arise.

Why We Are Consulting

It is important that we gauge the views of parents, pupils and staff prior to writing our policy as their insight will be invaluable. Many of these individuals may well be aware of our current Anti-Bullying Policy or have experience bullying themselves.


What Happens Next

After the survey closes, we will collate and analyse all of the responses and comments provided in order to inform our updated policy. These responses will also help to develop and implement any suggested improvements where these are needed.
