Welcome to Peaceful Schools
We are part of the UK educational charity: The Peace Building
Becoming a Peaceful School is a great opportunity to make your school stand out, to demonstrate your commitment to your pupils' welfare and to develop your teaching skillset. The Peaceful Schools Movement is a network of pioneering schools putting peace into practice through peace education and peaceful learning environments. Together we are creating generations of peacebuilders for a better future. Here you will find the tools and guidance to help you make your school more peaceful, successful and attractive. We also have an awards scheme that will give you the recognition that you deserve on your peace journey.

Here's a lovely recommendation from Alexis Stones, Senior Teaching Fellow for the RE PGCE and the MA Education, at UCL Institute of Education: 'How to be a Peaceful School' is a wonderful book. Inspiring and practical! I recommend it to student teachers, MA students, Citizenship and Primary Education colleagues and I use it in Initial Teacher Education and school INSET teaching.'
