Following a successful pilot with Dumfries and Galloway Council early 2021, respectme has launched a new validated self-assessment process and toolkit. The respectme reward programme is designed to help schools and youth services review their anti-bullying policy and practice, help them celebrate success and plan for continuous improvement. By taking part in this self-assessment process, and with support from respectme along the way, the ambition is that excellent anti-bullying practice across Scotland will be recognised by the new respectme reward.
The respectme reward recognises the serious thought that goes into successful anti-bullying policy and practice and the intentional efforts needed to ensure stakeholders have consistent and positive experiences in your setting. We want to acknowledge, through this accolade, the energy that a whole-school approach to anti-bullying can generate, and the real difference it can make! A robust anti-bullying policy matched by consistent, predictable practice will help to create safe environments where bullying cannot thrive.
