Friendly Schools is a whole-school approach to support schools to develop a culture of respect, to increase social and emotional wellbeing, and prevent bullying in Primary and Secondary Schools.
“Friendly Schools is a multi-component, evidence-based, whole-school initiative involving the whole-school community to build social skills, create supportive environments and significantly reduce bullying in school communities. It draws on 13 major research projects conducted over 15 years involving 27 000 Australian school students.”
