Safeguarding: You may have seen recent publicity around under-reporting of bullying in Scottish schools, click here  At Lasswade, we use the Seemis Anti-Bullying Module to log bullying incidents and these are monitored for trends to support interventions.  If you become aware of bullying incidents, please do not hesitate to raise these with your child’s Student Support teacher.  This allows us to investigate further and take actions as appropriate.
