Guidance for staff

  • ABA business partner Restorative Thinking has developed the Restorative Thinking Parenting Programme (Parenting without Conflict).  For three years, this programme has been delivered in Children's Centres and Restorative Thinking teams are now training school staff to deliver the programme.  The Parenting Programme is being rolled out, alongside the Restorative Thinking KS1 & KS2 toolkit, with primary schools in Preston as part of a project funded by the Shackleton Foundation.  Restorative Thinking's aim is for both pupils and their parents to be able to adopt restorative practices, leading to stronger relationships between parents and children, parents and schools and pupils and teachers. For more information visit: http://www.restorativethinking.co.uk/schools/parenting-programme/

  • The briefing is based on replies received to an enquiry to the Eurydice network on anti-bullying strategies. The purpose of the enquiry was to find out what measures had been taken or supported by education authorities in different education systems across Europe and which, if any, had been found to be particularly effective. Responses were received from eight countries: Austria, Cyprus, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Poland, Slovakia and Spain.http://www.nfer.ac.uk/nfer/index.cfm?09AA0A4D-C29E-AD4D-026F-F316C8EB0BD2

  • Dilly's Dog's Disguises by Emma Andrews This is the first of a series of books written by new children's author, Emma Andrews, who has drawn on her own experience of childhood bullying to produce this resource for primary school-aged children. The central character in Dilly's Dog's Disguises is Dilly, a six-year-old girl who, like the author, has cerebral palsy. If Dilly is feeling upset, she simply needs to call her pet - and Dotty will magically appear, in disguise as a grown up, quickly coming to the rescue, to stop the bullies from being unkind.http://www.dillysdog.co.uk/
