Respect for All (Anti-Bullying Policy) Consultation

Closed 12 Nov 2020

Opened 29 Oct 2020


East Lothian Council is in the process of developing a new policy in line with the Scottish Government's national approach to anti-bullying for Scotland's children and young people.

“Bullying is both behaviour and impact; the impact is on a person’s capacity to feel in control of themselves. This is what we term as their sense of ‘agency’. Bullying takes place in the context of relationships; it is behaviour that can make people feel hurt, threatened, frightened and left out. This behaviour happens face-to-face and online” (Respect for All: The National Approach to Anti-Bullying for Scotland’s Children and Young People, 2017)

In order to ensure that East Lothian's anti-bullying policy meets the needs of our children and young people, we are seeking your views on bullying and the draft policy itself. Please click the pdf link below located at the bottom of this page under 'Related' before proceeding to preview the draft. You may then complete the brief questionnaire to provide feedback.

By taking part in this consultation, you are helping to end bullying behaviour and discrimination.
