​​Ideas for a safe and supportive school community lesson plans 

The Ideas for a safe and supportive school community lesson plans involve students generating and evaluating their ideas to help the school to be a safe and supportive community for everyone.

Lesson plans and supporting materials are available for Years 3–4, 5–6, 7–8 and 9–10 (also suitable for students in Years 11–12).

In each 60–80 minute lesson plan students participate in a community of inquiry to generate and evaluate ideas to help their school to be safe and supportive. Specific lesson resources are provided below, and teachers may also want to use other Materials to extend the theme of the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence.
