Making our schools Covid-safe has, for some, decreased the number of incidences young people are experiencing. One-way systems, bubbles and staggered breaks has meant contact and conflict has been limited. Indeed, this state of high control has improved wellbeing for some staff. We are becoming experts at keeping the peace.
However, the differential experiences of lockdown have meant that not all of us are recovering or moving on in the same way. What are we papering over? How can we help people move forward in a safe, structured and peace-building way?
We are offering a workshop to help educators think more deeply around the ways they can not only keep the peace in school, but also support staff and students to build the peace as we transition into new territories.
Covid has provided an opportunity for us to identify what we don’t want but also how we might work towards what we do want in schools. If you’d like to be part of this conversation and get some tools and strategies to help move the culture in your school towards one of peace-building. We look forward to welcoming you.
