Parliamentary debates and questions

S5W-16493: Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride)

Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 8 May 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what consultation was carried out during the development phase of Respect for All: The National Approach to Anti-bullying for Scotland’s Children and Young People.

Answered by: John Swinney 21 May 2018

The development of ‘Respect for All’ was informed by a number of engagement sessions with children and young people; parents and carers; and, practitioners. Questionnaires were also issued to children and young people, and parents and carers.

In addition, in November 2016, I agreed to pause the publication of ‘Respect of All’ to enable further engagement with the Equality and Human Rights Committee, as part of their investigation into Bullying in Schools.
