Respectful Relationships is an initiative of the Victorian Government to support schools and early childhood education settings promote and model respect and equality. It also supports educators to teach our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.
At Kingsbury Primary School, we ensure that each child in our care receives tools and strategies to live, happy, health and prosperous lives.
Our approach to Respectful Relationships is a whole-school model for those who work, visit and learn here. Everyone at Kingsbury is respected, valued and treated equally. A culture of respect is found across our school in:
- Sporting events
- Social situations
This approach leads to positive impacts on students’ academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour and relationships with others.
A range of resources have been provided for classroom tuition and support. The 8 topics in the RR curriculum include:
All topics are covered at a level suitable for the age of the students involved, taught by their classroom teacher in conjunction with peers. Combined with the Berry Street Education Model, the introduction of this program in 2017 has seen many positive impacts across our student cohort. Please talk to your child’s classroom teacher if you would like to see examples of the Respectful Relationships activities.
