The Aurora School Bullying Project

 

Assessment

How did the school staff and teachers value the project?

Some comments and a formal assessment

"This was very successful"

"Would like to know of more titles of books that we can buy to address issues."

"We need to keep on top of our written policy but by ensuring it is alive in school."

"wish we could have spent more time"

"the best INSET [training] we ever had"

"this session raised many issues in my mind which I hadn’t considered before"

A formal assessment

The Powerpoint presentation was thought provoking and set the scene. One comment from the evaluation summed this up, “I really like the images as we came in, silent yet powerful.” Other comments were equally positive, “it opened my eyes to possible problems” and “I particularly appreciated the advice on how to deal with homophobic language and behaviour”. The second part of the training focused on practical work in groups facilitated by the Senior Leadership Team. Groups worked on case studies based on the potential situations common in schools. The groups then discussed the questions arising from the studies and logged what was in the School that allowed them to deal with similar situations. This prompted thinking about Equality and Diversity legislative duties and how to comply with this Guidance through policy and curriculum.

The evaluation stated that 98% of the staff had found the training useful and 78% felt that they could raise the issues of homophobia and L.G.B.T. people with pupils and students in School where appropriate. I personally found the experience extremely positive, Sue Sanders is inspirational and practical to work with and I look forward to a follow up project next year. I can recommend this training to all colleagues.

I was impressed by the research undertaken in the presentation produced by Sue and even more impressed that Sue amended the presentation in response to feed back I offered.
