Safe School - Promoting students’ engagement in the prevention of bullying in schools

SafeSchool

Promoting students’ engagement in the prevention of bullying in schools

In 2012, UNICEF has identified bullying as one of the major factors leading to under achievement, non-attendance and drop out of children and young people from school. SafeSchool project aims at raising awareness about the harm that bullying causes and the way students can be protected presenting solutions in order to foster a safe environment based on respect, solidarity and social inclusion.

CECE, as member of EAN, participates in the SafeSchool Erasmus+ project that will develop a blended teachers’ training for the prevention, monitoring of bullying and the evaluation of the effectiveness on the school organization for the reduction of bullying. This training will contain activities for teachers to be used in the ordinary school life as transversal activities.

SafeSchool will design and implement a new anti-bullying programme in the schools of four different European countries. Drawing on the experience of the project partners, it will provide further evidence of effective approaches to the reduction of bullying in schools.

The project will result in training materials applying child centred approach and a blended teachers training for the prevention and monitoring of bullying and the evaluation of the effectiveness of the measures adopted by the schools.

Safe School will:

  1. Reduce number of incidents and impact of violence at school.
  2. Improve strategies and responses to incidences of bullying and help avoid recurrence.
  3. Train teachers in the empowerment of all school staff and parents as change agents in reducing bullying and in the education of children and young people.
  4. Disseminate widely the results of the project.
