PSE - An answer to phone bullying
Guidance on tackling bullying via the internet and mobile phones is set to be issued to teachers in Highland.
Teachers are being reminded that they have the power to impound phones that are being used for cyber-bullying for investigative purposes.
Advice on the draft version of the guidance was sought from professionals, parents and police as well as the anti-bullying organisation Respectme, said its author, Louise Jones, the authority's health-promoting schools manager. "Respectme is unaware of any other authority in Scotland which has developed support for professionals with the unique issues which cyber-bullying can present," she added.
