Bullying awareness workshops for young people in Years 5-7
During 2019 Kidscape will be piloting the delivery of ZAP in Schools. This will be a 2 hour tools workshop for children in Years 5-7, plus the option of a 45-60 minute parent and carer session.
2,065 children participated in the RISE programme between January to July 2019:
The focus of the ZAP workshop is to provide groups with an understanding of the difference between teasing and bullying as well as the role of the bystander. Additionally, it is to provide groups with the understanding of how to use ZAP tools in a potential bullying situation.
The aim of the workshop is to increase the confidence of children by providing an empowering and practical workshop that increases levels of confidence and provide techniques for dealing with excessive teasing and bullying, while developing a positive sense of self. The workshops are classroom based and involve a mixture of activities, role plays and discussions.
The maximum group size a facilitator can work with is 30. Teachers/TAs are expected to support facilitators with classroom management and some of the activities when needed.
Parent and carer session
This is an optional session where school can invite parents and carers into a 45-60 minute information session where we explain what we have been doing in the workshops and share some of our tools and techniques so that parents and carers can support their children at home.
