·         Pav Ayoub / Lorna Naylor: Anti Bullying work

NCC has a policy statement about anti-bullying which is currently being redrafted. Alongside this there is a young person’s guide saying what young people in Nottinghamshire should expect to happen if they experience bullying and where to get help. The young person’s guide is in need of an update. It was written by young people several years ago. Pav would like to work with a group of interested young people to look at how we can update the guide including what shape it might be in terms of handouts, posters and an online version.


Alongside the above, to discuss a proposal to develop a base line survey over the next year to see what the concerns were in their schools and then devise  a piece of work which could be more scientifically measured possibly for ABW 2017.
