Beacon Peaceful Schools

Beacon Peaceful Schools are pioneers!

What could be more important than working for peace in the world?! Schools can play a massive role in making the world a more peaceful place. And lots of schools are already doing a lot of work on peace - in different ways. Some are further down this path than others. A few are exceptional and they have become 'Beacon Peaceful Schools'. The pioneers/Beacon Peaceful Schools are described below. Scroll down this page to read about them!

How can my school get a Beacon Award?

Schools get their Beacon Peaceful School Awards from the Peaceful Schools Strategy Group. Following receipt of a Submission Form (see link below) a member of the Group visits and assesses the school on a range of things including the senior leadership's passion and commitment for creating a peaceful environment with staff and pupils. We look at aspects of what the school is doing in four inter-related areas:

  • How pupils are helped to develop their ability to connect to their inner peace.
  • What is being done to enable the development of peaceful relationships in the school.
  • The whole school ethos - is it peace promoting?
  • How pupils are being equipped to be peacemakers within the school and in the wider world.
  • Peace work beyond the school - in the local community and in other areas.

Helpful Guidance - Pathways for Peaceful Schools

The assessment process is free. If you think your school, or a school you know, could be considered to be a Beacon Peaceful School i.e. a model for others to learn from, then please get in touch with Anna Lubelska, anna@peacefulschools.org.uk
