    1. Creating Your Peaceful Primary School 2013 www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk

    2. Peacemakers (West Midlands Quaker Peace Education Project) • Equipping children and staff with skills to resolve conflicts creatively • Helping build more peaceful school communities through inclusive and restorative approaches • Helping build, maintain and repair healthy relationships throughout the school www.peacemakers.org.uk

    3. Why Peaceful Primaries? 1. We have some serious issues: According to the UNICEF 2007 report on Children’s well-being in rich countries, the UK is bottom of the table, with the unhappiest children. 50% of teachers are on the verge of leaving the profession. 50% of newly qualified teachers leave within the first 5 years. 84% of teachers are demoralised (NASUWT) www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk

    4. Why Peaceful Primaries? • We hear stories of bullying, especially cyber bullying, and bullying of those with special needs • The violence on our streets and screens, sometimes in our homes as well as around the world www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk

    5. Why Peaceful Primaries? 2. More everyday concerns from teachers and Senior Managers: low level rumbling conflicts disrupted lessons from behaviour issues cliques and classes not gelling racist or homophobic language aggressive incidents with parents poor relationships between some children, and between some staff and children www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk

    6. Why Peaceful Primaries? 3. Going around schools I hear of a widespread desire for our children: to have more self-confidence be willing to work with a wider range of classmates have more care around hurtful language become kinder to each other show more empathy. www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk www.peacemakers.org.uk

    7. The Answer? “Every child can benefit from a military ethos” Michael Gove, December 2012 www.peacemakers.org.uk

    8. Why the call for a military ethos? • Builds camaraderie • Instills discipline • Encourages co-operation, team work, participation www.peacemakers.org.uk

    9. A Peaceful Ethos may be a better answer… • Builds community • Instills moral compass • Encourages co-operation, team work, participation • Develops emotional intelligence • Promotes equality and inclusion • Teachers students to think for themselves • Encourages empathy and kindness www.peacemakers.org.uk

    10. How do these help? • Community and a moral compass have a positive impact on behaviour and attainment • Well-being is affected by the quality of our relationships • Emotional intelligence impacts on behaviour and relationships www.peacemakers.org.uk

    11. How do these help? • Self-esteem is built in part through friendship and positive relationships • There is a link between bullying and the strength of relationships across a community • Stress can be alleviated by the ability to find one’s own inner peace of mind www.peacemakers.org.uk

    12. Even Ofsted agrees: “There is more to life than achieving high standards in academic subjects” Promoting and evaluating pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development Ofsted March 2004 www.peacemakers.org.uk

    13. “Education is for… the training of good human beings, purposeful and wise, themselves with a vision of what it is to be human and what kind of society makes that possible” Promoting and evaluating pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development Ofsted March 2004 www.peacemakers.org.uk

    14. Qualities we will see: • Sense of empathy with others • Understanding human feelings and emotions • Respect for themselves and others • Readiness to challenge injustice, racism, use of force etc. • Accommodating difference • Ability to distinguish right from wrong • Ability to think through the consequences of their actions • Able to resolve conflicts www.peacemakers.org.uk
