Respectful Relationships and Anti-bullying

In Scottish Borders, our vision is that all learning establishments are safe, respectful and nurturing environments where bullying behaviour is never acceptable.

"Bullying is both behaviour and impact; what someone does and the impact it has on the other person’s capacity to feel in control of themselves. We call this their sense of ‘agency’. Bullying takes place in the context of relationships. It is behaviour that can make people feel hurt, threatened, frightened and left out and it can happen face to face and online.”  (respectme, 2015)
