I would like to contribute to this debate.

I was bullied at school myself and have now decided to put my previous experiences to good use by promoting bullying in Swindon schools and by fundraising for charities in Swindon who help and support people who are being bullied and other issues that children may have.

I am going to be contacting you directly Justin as well as Robert Buckland, for more information on how you are working with Swindon Borough Council/local schools to implement what the Schools Minister Nick Gibb has said

"That’s why the Coalition agreement that unites the Government gives priority to tackling bullying and raising standards of behaviour in the classroom.

There are three clear principles behind the Government’s position:

•We can’t allow any young person to go to school dreading the treatment they will get.
•When a bullied child is brave enough to speak out, we must support them – not the bully.
•When bullies are identified, we can’t just suspend them for a couple of days and then allow them to saunter back into school to torment their victims all over again"

Thank you,
