Rights, Respect, Equality: Support Service

In September of this year, the Welsh Government launched Rights, respect, equality: statutory guidance to assist school governors, staff and relevant professionals working within a school environment in developing and implementing anti-bullying policies and strategies.   

The coronavirus has had a dramatic impact on young lives. Now, more than ever, they need support to build respectful relationships with one another, to feel safe within a challenging and changing environment and ready to learn. The pastoral care and mental health of children remains our absolute priority. 

The Welsh Government have funded Kidscape to provide practical support to governors and staff to make sure that all learners feel safe, secure and are supported to achieve their full potential. 

Rights, Respect, Equality: School Support Webinars

We would encourage every school to identify a lead governor and staff member to lead on anti-bullying policy and strategy development. School leads will then be encouraged to attend one of our Rights, Respect, Equality School Support webinars which we will deliver online from December - March 2021. These webinars will be delivered in English and Welsh.

All school leads who sign up for the webinar will be provided with an audit tool and action plan to help develop and update your anti-bullying policy and strategy over the next 3-12 months. The webinar will take you through the action plan step by step, with the opportunity for  Q and A.

The dates of the webinars are as follows:

  • Friday December 4th                                                                                              
  • Friday December 11th
  • Friday January 8th      
  • Friday January 15th
  • Friday January 22nd
  • Friday January 29th  (Delivered in Welsh)
  • Friday February 5th  (Delivered in Welsh)
  • Friday February 12th
  • Friday February 26th

All webinars will run from 12.30pm-2.30pm.
