What is Respectful Relationships?
Our community thrives to encourage everyone to be respected, valued and treated equally. We know that we can achieve that through our education settings to encourage positive attitudes, behaviours and equality by it being embedded within our student’s education and across our entire community. This approach leads to positive impacts on student’s academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour, and positive relationships between teachers, students and others.
Respectful relationships education became a core component of the Victorian curriculum. The Resilience, rights and respectful relationships teaching and learning materials have been developed to support schools to deliver the curriculum.
At Glenroy West Primary School, we align the RRRR curriculum with the PYP to ensure the best outcomes in building positive behaviours and relationships.
The Victorian Curriculum includes learning about respectful relationships in both health and physical education and personal and social capability. In health and physical education curriculum, students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to strengthen their sense of self, and build and manage safe and respectful relationships. In the personal and social capability curriculum, students learn to recognise and regulate emotions, develop empathy for others and establish and build a framework for positive relationships.
Together, we can lead the way in saying yes to respect and equality, and creating genuine and lasting change so that every child has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
