CP Investigates Bullying

Through the lens of children’s human rights, children from eight schools in the City of Edinburgh explored what they need to feel happy and safe in their relationships at home, school and in their community. Each school hosted a team of six CP Investigators who met with Children’s Parliament staff to explore what bullying is and its effects. Through the project’s outputs and sharing events, investigator’s ideas helped to influence the City of Edinburgh Council’s understanding of bullying in schools.

Bullying makes children feel horrible, abandoned and left alone. You feel like no-one ever cares about you.
