Welcome to Peaceful Schools  

We are part of the UK educational charity: The Peace Building

 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. 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. Here you will find the tools and guidance to help you make your school more peaceful, successful and attractive. We also have a free awards scheme for all types of schools that will give you the recognition that you deserve on your peace journey. In the 2024/2025 school year we'd like to receive lots of nominations for Peacemakers in schools, Peaceful Projects and Beacon Schools - it's a cost-free and painfree process. Please click on the 'Awards' tab above.
