Thread Name: BS: Schoolyard bullying
Subject: RE: BS: Schoolyard bullying
Lots of examples on t'interweb, Lox. This is just one example from Cornwall. There are a number of mentions but to save you looking through them all I quote here directly -

The school believes that racism is wrong and it will not tolerate racist attitudes among its staff, pupils or those who visit the school. Staff, when they encounter it or when it is brought to their attention, will always challenge racist attitudes and behaviour. The school will not tolerate racist taunting or bullying and in certain cases will contact the police, especially if parents are involved

I realy do hope they change the policy to include all taunting and bullying. My point is that it just seems so wrong to trivialise other types of bullying.
