ZAP in Schools: Bullying awareness, assertiveness and resilience workshops for children in Years 5-8
2,065 children participated in the programme between January to July 2019:
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 dealing with excessive teasing and bullying, 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.
