Improving School Climate to Help Prevent Bullying WHAT is school climate? School climate refers to the quality and character of school life. 1. The more positive school culture is, the better kids. will be able to learn. 2. i e valuing each person as a contributor. A y l e s. d l by adults for students engaging everyone e involving students.
Building a positive school climate. School climate can be difficult to define, though possible to measure. It is the “felt sense” of being in a school, which can arise from a greeting, the way a problem is resolved, or how people work together; it is a school’s “heart and soul,” its “quality and character.”.
Bullying harms kids in nearly every way imaginable. It disrupts their learning; it causes them to suffer anxiety and depression; and it undermines their feelings of safety and connection to school. New understandings of bullying are based on relationships and connect directly to the growing appreciation of the role of the social climate within schools and its connection to bullying. Bullying can occur for many reasons.
Some children are more likely to be targeted, for example, based on disability, 23 sexual orientation, 24 gender identity, 24 weight, 25,26 race or religion. For instance: A recent national survey of school climate found that more than 80 percent of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth reported some form of bullying or harassment at school. Build a Safe Environment A safe and supportive school climate can help prevent bullying. Safety starts in the classroom.
Students should also feel and be safe everywhere on campus—in the cafeteria, in the library, in the rest rooms, on the bus, and on the playground. School climate is a broad, multifaceted concept that involves many aspects of the student’s educational experience. A positive school climate is the product of a school’s attention to fostering safety; promoting a supportive academic, disciplinary, and physical environment; and encouraging and maintaining respectful, trusting, and caring relationships throughout the school community. To effectively prevent bullying, schools need to understand positive school climate, use reliable measures to evaluate school climate and use effective prevention and intervention programs to.
When a student is harassed or belittled, be it in school or online, that abuse not only affects their personal outlook, it also often impacts the climate of the entire school or school district. Often a poor school environment becomes a breeding ground for bullying and other safety and discipline issues. The way that a school responds to bullying incidents leaves a lasting impression on the victims, the bullies, the parents of students and the surrounding community. There is a wide range of possible responses, many poor, which is why it’s important for a school to have a well-thought-out plan in place before a bullying incident occurs.
