OUR BUSINESS IN SHORT

Safe Learning,

from kindergarten through to upper secondary school

Safe Learning is an organization working to promote and develop a healthy and positive psychosocial learning environment and restorative justice throughout the entire course of education, from kindergarten through to upper secondary school. The organization began as the network organization Norwegian Forum for School Mediation (NFFS) in 2009 and became a formal organization in the fall of 2011. In the fall of 2013 NFFS changed its name to Safe Learning for two reasons. The primary reason for the name change was to expand our target audience beyond primary school to include the entire course of education from kindergarten to upper secondary school. For the second reason, it was necessary to highlight that the focus of Safe Learning is as much about preventative work as it is about conflict resolution.

WHAT WE DO?

Safe Learning works to spread knowledge and understanding about the principles and methods of restorative justice that are used by mediation boards, in school mediation as well as mediation efforts on the streets.

Safe Learning offers counselling and courses to new schools and kindergartens that want to implement programs for restorative justice in their own organizations. The implementation of restorative practices includes pupils, students, kindergarten children, employees, parents and management. The goal is to build a foundation based on harmony, friendship and a safe inclusive environment where the seeds of bullying, harassment, violence and racism do not have the opportunity to grow.
