What are the best ways of tackling bullying in school?

According to the anti-bullying pack ('Action Against Bullying') which was sent to all schools in Scotland, the most important thing a school can do to tackle bullying is to have a clear policy which pupils, staff and parents support. A school can also use the curriculum to raise awareness and to get the message across that bullying is unacceptable. A key message of the pack is to encourage a feeling of openness in the school, one which encourages children to speak up if they are being bullied.
