SAFER – SociAl competences and FundamEntal Rights for preventing bullying is a three-year project funded by the Erasmus + Programme (KA3- Social inclusion and common values: the contribution in the field of education and training) of the European Union that aims to develop and implement an innovative method for preventing school violence and bullying for fostering inclusive education.
The SAFER Project starts from the Whole School approach and passes to Whole School and Community Approach (WSCA), having as target groups students 8-14 years old, teachers and school staff,parents and members of the educating community. The proposed innovative approach intervenes in the four different levels of prevention and intervention: the student level, the class level, the school level, the level of the school in relation to the community where the school is in and where the students have social relations.
The WSCA is based on the:
- enhancement of the acquisition of social and civic competences
- promotion of common positive and democratic values and intercultural dialogue
- ownership of the fundamental rights,
in order to prevent and tackle bullying in a holistic way, supporting young people at home, at school, in class and in their community.
