In an article in the Birmingham Mail, Northfield councillor Reg Corns (Conservative) has said that many schools in the city do not do enough to tackle bullying.
He told the Mail: ““It needs to be taken seriously. Some schools do deal with it properly, but there are many who do not and they should be compelled to do so.”
Fellow Northfield councillor and head of the Children Young People and Families Directorate, Les Lawrence told the Mail that all schools are required to have a policy for dealing with bullying.
