Relationships are key to developing a Human Rights Friendly School. All interaction between and across members of the school community should be based on equality, non-discrimination, inclusion, respect, and dignity. A variety of activities can be employed to achieve this, including training or open meetings on rights and responsibilities; outreach projects in the community; activities to address bullying; activities on communication and conflict resolution; exhibitions with human rights themes; and partnerships with other Human Rights Friendly Schools around the world.
Explore how codes of conduct can enhance relationships between school community members. Find out the importance of behavioural guidelines and why we need them in the classroom.
These fun activities will help you create a set of behaviour guidelines for your own class or school.
Bullying MODULE 1
This is an activity pack specifically created to address bullying in school. It provides extensive information for all stakeholders on the definition and types of bullying in a school. It also gives each stakeholder tips on how to address this issue in a sustainable manner through anti-bullying charters or policies.
SELF ASSESSMENT MODULE 1
How human rights friendly is your school? Which areas of school life require human rights related attention? What is the level of human rights friendliness that your school aspires towards?
These are some of the important questions that our self-assessment tool helps you - the teachers and school management - to answer. Based on your self-assessment of your school, we help you build vision statements and action plans to strengthen your school's path towards human rights friendliness.
