Anti-Bullying Award - Positive Peaceful Places
Postive and preaceful places has been developed to support schools in evolving peaceful practices in all its forms. The award looks at how schools can develop structures, policies and systems but also to develop justice, fairness, a shared ethos and the building of healthy relationships.
The first schools have now successfully completed the award, and many schools are currently on their journey towards accreditation. We are continuing to run the award but with adaptations that suit schools due to social distancing and recognising the challenges schools face at the moment. View further details.
Please consider the environment.
