DESCRIPTION OF THE GOOD PRACTICE:

This handbook is written to support the Council of Europe’s aim to help decision makers and others to implement consistent policies of awareness-rising, prevention and law enforcement to combat violence in everyday life. In particular it fulfills this Organization’s declared intention to prepare a handbook on the implementation of strategies to prevent violence at school, on the basis of the conclusions of the conference on “Local partnerships for preventing and combating violence at school”, and including a number of specific examples of good practice.

RESULTS:

The first months, the very first year of implementing a plan for responding to violence may require intensive efforts commensurate with pre-existing levels of violence. School communities must be convinced that violence is neither inevitable nor acceptable and that it can be eradicated from the school through a culture and adequate training.

INDICATORS:

Definition of bullying or cyberbullying, Detection protocol, Intervention protocol, Information for parents.

EVALUATION:

The handbook is designed to be used by all schools, primary, secondary or special. It is written for all education professionals, not only teachers and head teachers but also the growing numbers of professionals who work with schools in support of children. Indeed, it may help who wants to improve the way schools work, within their locality, to ensure that they are safe and caring communities where children can learn in an environment free of repression, intimidation and violence. pages
