Young People, Parents & Schools

NCRN’s partnership with young people, parents and schools aims to:

  • celebrate good things that are already happening
  • identify and name difficult issues at an early stage
  • share creative ways of dealing with conflict
  • support a sustained ‘whole-school’ approach to addressing conflict, encouraging emotional intelligence, not just ad hoc piecemeal approaches.

We are:

  • supporting a project, in the Walker area of Newcastle, called Zippy’s Friends
  • to teach children emotional coping skills by working with and through their teachers’ in school
  • to involve their parents and carers in the hope of extending the school-based work into the family
