These tools will assist practitioners who are supporting and partnering with early childhood services and schools to develop, implement and evaluate an evidence based, whole school approach to respectful relationships education (RRE).

These tools will support practitioners to address the drivers of violence, including:

  • Condoning of violence against women.
  • Men’s control of decision-making and limits to women’s independence in public and private life.
  • Rigid gender roles and stereotyped constructions of masculinity and femininity.
  • Male peer relations that emphasise aggression and disrespect towards women.

Early Childhood Services


Primary Schools


Secondary Schools


PiP has compiled a list of videos for RRE practitioners to incorporate into the training they provide to staff, sessions they run with families or community organisations, or to be provided to early childhood professionals or school teachers as a resource to use with their students or colleagues. Please note that whilst some of these videos will be appropriate for use with younger children, others are more applicable for use by students in secondary school or by RRE professionals in a school.

Responding to disclosures

As RRE activity may lead to disclosures from both victims and perpetrators (from children, young people, their families or staff), it is important that all early childhood and school staff are trained and confident to respond to these disclosures before any RRE activity is introduced.

For more information on responding to family violence, have a look at the resources on The Lookout website or see what training is available at DVRCV.
