Bullying and harassment

Perth & Kinross schools and learning communities should be safe, secure, healthy and happy places for our children and young people to attend. They should benefit from learning environments which are free from intimidation, harassment and fear and where bullying behaviour is unacceptable.

Dealing with bullying and bullying behaviour

Each school will have its own anti-bullying policy which underpins Perth & Kinross Council's  Anti-Bullying Strategy (PDF) [3MB] , and clearly sets out how the school will deal with reported incidents of bullying and bullying behaviour.

Our strategy considers the widening definition of bullying behaviour that now includes cyber-bullying and the many forms of prejudice-based bullying.

You should report any incidents of bullying to your child's teacher or another member of school staff.  Your child should also be encouraged to report bullying to someone they trust. The school will investigate and do all it can to minimise any further inappropriate behaviour.  This can include a range of actions to suit the particular circumstances and may include taking a Restorative Approach.

A strongly promoted whole school policy, which is widely understood by all members of the school community and evident in the school ethos, will help to prevent bullying behaviour.

Advice and support

Our leaflets on bullying provide support and guidance for both  parents and carers (PDF) [774KB] and pupils (PDF) [786KB] .

For further information please contact your child's school.
