PiP Webinar – Supporting a whole school approach to respectful relationships education

June 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm


Grab your lunch and join us online!


The single most important criterion for effective violence prevention and respectful relationships education in schools is taking a whole school approach. This, however, can be challenging and is often done to varying degrees.

Join us for a discussion about the whole school approach to respectful relationships.

This webinar is for:

  • Anyone working in or with schools or settings with children and young people.
  • Anyone interested in respectful relationships education or a whole school approach.
  • Anyone wanting to work in or with schools to support them to embed a whole of school approach to gender equality and respectful relationships.

During this discussion, we will unpack and explore:

  • What a whole school approach is and why it is important.
  • What the successful implementation of a whole of school approach to respectful relationships looks like in practice.
  • The barriers stopping schools from implementing a whole school approach and strategies to overcome these.
  • The tools and resources available to support this work.
  • Lessons learnt from rolling out the whole school approach to respectful relationships and how these can be applied by others taking a whole of setting approach in different settings.
