Parents Voice in Government School Education

Behaviour and mental health in schools

We have just added this report to our Relationship based Education (RbE) pages, because its conclusions are so closely aligned to the core principles of RbE.

The report from the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition (UK) is based on a year-long inquiry into mental health and behaviour in schools. It supports many of the central ideas of RbE, including the idea that relationships should be at the centre of school culture. The report’s first recommendation is, “School leaders should commission staff training around relational and restorative approaches to help make the necessary changes and build more inclusive and nurturing environments for all pupils.”

The report is well worth a read, for parents and educators alike! You can also download a brief summary, case studies and a visual representation of the key findings.
