A working group established as part of the Scottish Government’s Race Equality and Racism in Education Programme is currently considering the issues raised in this section. The materials below will be revised as necessary to reflect the outcome of the working group.
The Scottish Government’s working group looking at Racism and Racist Incidents in education has dropped the term ‘racist bullying’ based on feedback from members and communities of colour. The use of the term ‘bullying’ instead of ‘racism’ can cause offence because it can lead to the dilution and avoidance of the issue of racism. Members from the working group noted the reporting of ‘bullying’ can lead to the under-reporting of racist incidents taking place in education. Educators should be mindful of conflating racism with bullying. Until the publication of more inclusive guidance on dealing with racism and racist incidents, respectme
will continue to reference and recommend current anti-bullying policies and guidance for immediate support.
