The emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people is at the heart of achieving the outcomes ensure that our children have the best start in life and are ready to succeed. This involves building the four capacities of becoming successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens as well as having improved life chances where they are more at risk. The eight indicators of wellbeing in children and young people are that they are safe, included, responsible, respected, active, nurtured, achieving, and healthy.

Bullying behaviour has a negative impact on all of those indicators for both the young person participating in bullying behaviour and those experiencing it. Bullying can exist in all schools and we recognise the detrimental impact it has on the lives of children and young people. Everyone working with children and young people need to challenge behaviour and attitudes which lead to bullying behaviour before incidents arise. When incidents do arise, it is important there are agreed procedures in place to ensure the appropriate action is taken. 2021-22
