Babies in class in bid to stop school bullies

A leading charity is calling for babies from South Ayrshire to help primary school pupils understand their feelings and the feelings of others.

Action for Children Scotland is introducing internationally-acclaimed anti-bullying initiative Roots of Empathy to South Ayrshire schools for the first time – and it needs local babies and their parents to take part.

Roots of Empathy encourages schoolchildren to interact in a nurturing manner by taking a baby – known as a ‘Tiny Teacher’ – into the classroom throughout the school year.
