ABC – Anti Bullying Craigmount
This week saw the launch of ABC – Anti Bullying Craigmount, an initiative which includes a textline dedicated to combating bullying. The ABC line gives students another way to tell someone about any bullying they may experience or witness.
The ABC number will be displayed around the school, and texts will go directly to the head teachers office. Any low level bullying which is reported will be dealt with by the ABC Advisory Group and high level bullying will be referred either to guidance or to our Community Police Liaison Officer. Although only a text reply can be given for texts which are anonymous, if students give their names when texting, it is easier for us to take action.
We hope that these measures will enhance the anti bullying policy we already have in place at Craigmount and enable us to continue to deal with bullying effectively.
