Inclusion – equity

Early School Leaving / combating failure in education

Project Summary:

School bullying is defined as” Unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance”. The values of freedom, tolerance, respect for diversity and non-discrimination are cornerstone values of European societies, but bullying at schools damages these values.Bullying issue is a key factor in early school leaving, and has serious and long-term effects. It affects mental health and the academic performance of children. The coordinating school(Slovenia) felt the necessity of implementing this project based on the needs analysis with the aim of increasing academic achievement, raising the rate of university placement, dropping out of school and achieving social inclusion, which is in accordance with EU 2020 goals and the achievement of schools’ own strategic goals, so the coordinator collaborate with other 5 schools   ( Romania, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Slovania), which have attach importance to bullying issues and have good practices about it.The target audience of the project is students, teachers, parents, school administrations, local people, neighboring schools, local authorities. In total 72 teachers who constantly strive for their own professional development and 144 students aged between 14-16 will participate in 6 LTTs.

We aim at obtaining the following in/tangible results:

  • Reduced bullying in partner schools at least by 30% and 40% for the 1st and 2nd years of the project respectively
  • Teachers and parents will learn their roles and responsibilities to deal with bullying thanks to seminars
  • Short films by pupils and families
  • A rap song composed by pupils on befriending
  • Posters created by pupils
  • Seminars about preventing bullying for pupils, teachers and parents
  • An informational brochure to be distributed to other schools to make them aware of the project
  • A digital book to enlighten the other European countries experiencing the same problem
  • T-shirt designs for dissemination
  • Digital citizenship and Peer bullying weeks to be held in partner schools every year to ensure the sustainability
  • Silent Drama to raise awareness of bullying
