This is the cover of Prejudice-based bullying in Scottish schools - research report

This research examines prejudice-based bullying from the perspectives of Scottish secondary school pupils and teachers. It uses the lens of the protected characteristics covered by the Equality Act 2010 to assess how this behaviour is being experienced and addressed.

This report is a result of research undertaken across Scotland with pupils, teachers, and local authority[1] (LA) staff through surveys, focus groups and interviews. The work included a desk-based review of LA anti-bullying policies, and research on prejudice-based bullying.
