SCHOOL pupils across the North-east could be set to receive homework on how to cope with and prevent bullying.
Aberdeenshire Council has developed an anti-bullying policy for schools in the area following research conducted by the areas Youth Commission, a group made up of 20 pupils.
Under the plans, schools could be asked to set homework tasks around the topic of bullying, its effects and how to deal with it, for pupils to study at home and discuss with parents.
However it will be up to each school to decide what form the homework will take.
Anti-bullying initiatives would also be discussed at assemblies involving talks being given by pupils as well as conversations between teachers and experts.
Chairwoman of Aberdeenshire Council’s education, learning and leisure committee, councillor Isobel Davidson today said she also wants to see “anti-bullying champions” within schools.
