Kidscape Contribute to Day of Peace and Non-Violence Campaign

Kidscape’s Head of Programmes, Training and Volunteering Ashley Rolfe, was featured in a collection of advice on ways to combat bullying in schools. As curated by the international
educational publisher, Twinkl, the article is designed to tie-in with the UNESCO Day of Peace and Non-Violence. Across the world, 30th January is celebrated as the international School Day of Peace and Non-Violence, it was founded in 1964 by the Spanish poet, Lorenc Vidal Vidal in order to commemorate the death of Mahatma Gandhi. It was founded on a simple mission statement of: “Universal love, non-violence and peace. Universal love is better than egoism, nonviolence is better than violence, and peace is better than war.” Along with some great organisations from Europe, Africa, America & elsewhere, the article discusses the methods teachers and parents can employ to identify signs of violence & bullying while attempting to stop it before it begins.

The article was collated by the children’s educational publisher, Twinkl. Based out of Sheffield, England, Twinkl was founded in 2010, with a mission to ‘help those who teach’. The company provides high quality, trusted educational materials, which are all teacher created and checked. This ranges from schemes of work and assessments to augmented reality games and much more. The company has expanded across the globe including establishing a second office in Wollongong, Australia. They have won awards for Best Education Company of the year worldwide in 2017, ‘18 and ‘19.

Ashley focussed on cyberbullying, how to identify it as it is often more hidden than physical bullying, how it can progress off virtual spaces and a recommendation of questions to ask yourself before posting online.

For any parents who are concerned that their children may be suffering or involved in cyberbullying, Kidscape offer friendly, impartial, non-judgemental information, advice and support.
