Whole School Approaches to Developing Respectful Relationships
The National Coalition Against Bullying (NCAB) with the Alannah and Madeline Foundation (AMF)Workshop 2
Whole school approaches involve all school staff, parents and carers, students and the broader community in an active collaboration to address an issue in accordance with an agreed plan. This is distinct from an approach that assigns responsibility to particular staff members operating independently of other school community members.
Schools with an emphasis on building wellbeing work to develop a pro-social school culture, underpinned by positive teacher-student relationships and championed by school leaders, who remain involved and committed throughout the process.
Certain principles underpin whole school approaches:
•             universal implementation
•             embedded in the school’s curriculum, pedagogy, systems and processes
•             sustainable over time
•             involves parents and wider community
•             uses multiple strategies and sequences
•             ensures that teachers’ behaviour is consistent with core values and direction
•             do not rely on one-off information sessions, assemblies etc.
Developing respectful relationships across a school’s community is an important pathway to lower bullying, enhance wellbeing and improve academic outcomes.
