Evidence for Practice is the research-based text that informs the Friendly Schools Plus program, which aims to reduce bullying and promote social and emotional learning. The program links directly to the General Capabilities outlined in the Australian Curriculum under ‘Personal and Social Capability’. The Friendly Schools Plus series aims to develop students’ social and emotional competencies. Outcomes are developed through the following five focus areas:

  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management
  • Social awareness
  • Relationship skills
  • Social decision-making

Evidence for Practice describes the approach that schools can implement to maximise and sustain effective social skill-building and bullying-prevention strategies. By assisting school to identify evidence-based practices that align with their needs, Evidence for Practice supports sustainable changes to policy, the school’s social and physical climate and links with families, all of which can be achieved by implementing the practice toolkits provided. For schools that have already taken action in these areas, Evidence for Practice will offer the opportunity to review action, identify areas for improvement and to engage in activities that will maintain or enhance the existing processes. For schools that have not yet taken action, this book provides guidance for a school coordinating committee to develop and engage in a whole-school process to reduce and prevent bullying and increase social and emotional competence.
