  • All children/young people have the right go be supported to meet their emotional, and social needs as well their educational needs – a happy, healthy, social child/young person will achieve better educationally
  • Schools can and do contribute to the prevention of abuse, victimisation, bullying, exploitation, extreme behaviours, discriminatory views and risk-taking behaviours
