Implementing Respectful Relationships in all schools is a recommendation of the Royal Commission into Family Violence.
Respectful Relationships is a core component of the new Victorian Curriculum. Sale College has been selected as a Lead School to help deliver on this part of the new curriculum.
A whole school approach to Respectful Relationships goes beyond curriculum, recognising that to drive real change, classroom learning needs to be reinforced by what is modelled within the school community.
The whole school approach will include looking at schools’ practices and policies relating to gender and driving meaningful cultural change. The approach will build a culture of respect and equality in our schools - as learning places and as workplaces that achieve long-term change in the community.
Embedding Respectful Relationships in schools and early childhood settings is key to preventing family violence in the long term.
The Sale College Principal has written some pieces on the topic of Respectful Relationships that have appeared in recent editions of the Sale College Buzz. You can read these articles by clicking on a link below.
