FOI Request Secondary Transfers due to Bullying

Request 101001484723

I would like to know how many secondary school pupils in your council area have cited bullying in some form as their reason for switching schools? Can you please provide this information on a month-by-month basis for the last 5 years and in each case state which school the child left and, if possible, which school they moved to?

In each case, can you please detail the specific nature of the bullying as far as possible; i.e was it physical bullying, verbal bullying, persistent homophobic or racist abuse, cyberbullying? If possible, can you state the yeargroup and age of the child affected in each case?

The information supplied is not broken down into primary and secondary schools, as issuing this information has the potential to identify individual pupils.  We follow the code of practice used by The Scottish Government when issuing statistical information.  Numbers less than 5 are deemed to be disclosive and are therefore not published.
