ENABLE resource pack now available
Available now: the free ENABLE resource pack to provide teachers and families with the skills, knowledge and confidence to promote the wellbeing of young people.
- Self-Awareness: understanding how and why we feel like we do; building an emotional vocabulary to express feelings and become familiar with our own behavioural indicators.
- Self-Management: responding to our own emotions and shaping positive outcomes through a range of personal strategies.
- Social Awareness: recognising emotions in others including peers; interpreting social indicators and situations, and developing positive responses.
- Social Management: building a range of personal strategies that influence potential bullying situations to shape positive outcomes; setting group goals to shape a positive school climate.
A Parent/Carer Pack informs parents/carers about ways to keep their children safe, both online and offline, and includes activities that can be used to extend students' learning into the home.
- Students often prefer to talk to someone their own age and have more in common with someone their own age. Peer Supporters can therefore offer invaluable support to students affected by bullying.
- Students are often more aware of what goes on in peer groups and so, they can detect bullying issues before a member of staff.
- A Peer Supporter role can help students gain confidence, develop a sense of responsibility and empathy, and polish their active listening skills.
- European Schoolnet
On 26 April 2016, European Schoolnet was represented at the ‘Young people's mental health in Europe: promoting prevention and early intervention through multi-sector cooperation' symposium. Organised by Public Policy Exchange, the event brought together policymakers, stakeholders and experts with the opportunity to informally discuss measures taken and to be taken to improve mental health for young people in Europe.
The ENABLE (European Network Against Bullying in Learning and Leisure Environments) project aims to tackle bullying in a holistic way, helping young people exercise their fundamental rights in the home, school, class and community (i.e. peer group).
Everyone has the right to feel safe, to be treated fairly and with respect. Bullying, as a form of violence that is especially prevalent among children and adolescents, can rob them of these rights.
