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.
