ZAP in Schools: Bullying awareness, assertiveness and resilience workshops for children in Years 5-8

ZAP in Schools feedback

The content

The ZAP in Schools programme equips children and young people in Years 5-8 with the skills they need to both recognise and positively respond to a bullying situation.  This includes an understanding of the difference between teasing and bullying and the role of the bystander, and skills and techniques (the ZAP tools) that can be used in a potential bullying situation.

Our aim is to increase the confidence of children by providing an empowering and practical workshop that provides practical techniques for recognising and responding to bullying situations, while developing a positive sense of self. The workshops are classroom based and involve a mixture of activities, role plays and discussions. 

Teachers/Teaching Assistants are required to support facilitators with classroom management and some of the activities when needed.

How to apply

The ZAP in schools programme is currently available either free of charge or at a subsidised rate in regions of England and Wales (depending on current funding).
