What can be done to raise awareness?

The anti-bullying pack sent to all schools in Scotland ('Action Against Bullying') describes ways in which a school can tackle bullying. An important part of the programme is raising awareness. This can be approached in a number of ways, including discussion with all staff and pupils when developing an anti-bullying policy. Using the policy in the curriculum (for example in the social education programme) can help focus the mind of teachers and pupils on the issue. Other approaches include surveys of pupils and teachers to find out more about the extent and understanding of the problem within the individual school and also poster/leaflet campaigns.
