ERIFO is the Italian partner of Safe School.
The project will design and implement a new anti-bullying program in schools from 4 EU countries. The project will build on and combine the strengths of the each of the partners previous experiences and, together with recent innovative developments in focused solution, learning behaviour methodology and strategy, it will result in a coordinated range of leadership training materials applying a child centred, whole school approach to the effective reduction of bullying in schools.
The project 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.
The specific objectives of the project are:
a) Promote awareness of all members of the school community – children and young people, parents and school staff about the harm that bullying causes and how children and young people can be protected, including solutions to the problem of rising incidents of bullying. About 2000 stakeholders will be aware of solutions to protecting children and young people from bullying.
b) Reduce number of incidents and impact of violence against children at school, resulting from an improved safe and secure whole school environment of living together in harmony.
