Over 350 Moray children provide feedback on school bullying

Around 350 responses already to school bullying survey

OVER 350 CHILDREN and young people have already responded to an appeal by Moray Council for feedback on bullying in the region’s schools.

Moray Council launched a survey a week ago as part of their plans to create an anti-bullying policy throughout the entire school estate.

While the survey has been aimed at pupils in the P4 to P6 age group, several younger children have also submitted online responses.

A Moray Council spokesman said: “There have been responses from right across the age range and schools themselves have been actively encouraging pupils to take part which has undoubtedly helped the response rate.”

Comprising of questions that pupils are able to answer without giving up their own identity, the consultation is the first stage of a wide-ranging consultation on the issue that should lead to a comprehensive anti-bullying policy being introduced.

The online survey will remain open until Friday, September 25 following which the responses will be analysed to help inform the next stage of the process.
