Welcome to the Peaceful Schools Movement 

  A great opportunity to make your school stand out, to demonstrate your commitment to the children's welfare and to enhance your teaching skillset with our peaceful school initiative.

The Peaceful Schools Movement is a network of pioneering and inspiring 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.

How to be a Peaceful School

Everything you need to know about Peaceful Schools in easy to read chapters. Anna Lubelska, Founder of the Peaceful School Movement has brought together our award winners to share their experiences with you.

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.'
