We have a No Bullying rule here at Rossie, and we expect all our young people to treat each other with respect.
Bullying can happen in different ways and can make someone feel uncomfortable, excluded, scared and ashamed. Bullying is different to friends falling out or having an argument. We have lots of people on-site who you can talk to if you feel you are being bullied. We also have staff from Who Cares? Scotland, who are independent to Rossie staff, to help you if you feel you are being bullied.
We regularly have Compassion and Anti-bullying weeks to teach everyone about the effects of bullying, and what we can do to treat each other well.

Help and Support
Every young person should be aware of their rights as a young person in Scotland. Rossie aims to put into place the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. These rights cover all areas such as the right to be treated with respect, regardless of race, age, gender, sexuality, disability or religious beliefs.
