1
First Regional Seminar of the Project Social
Partners in Education Concerned about Violence in
Schools How to Prevent and Mitigate Third-Party
Violence and Harassment in Schools
  • 26 April 2012 Warsaw

2
POLAND - GDYNIA
  • 20th 21st of February
  • The first Case Study visit was attended by
  • Monika Konczyk (Poland),
  • Helene Hemet (France)
  • Jennifer Moses (UK)
  • who are members of the ETUCE Steering Group on
    tackling Third-party Violence and Harassment.

Secondary school (No. V)
  • The school is located on the outskirts of the
    city of Gdynia. The group met with the head
    teacher Mrs Alicja Adamczyk along with school
    workers and students at the school. Mrs Adamczyk
    has been head of the school for 12 years and
    there are 25 classes in the school of 300
    students aged 15 18 years of age. The school is
    made up of students from all social classes and
    there were more girls than boys.
  • There are 40 teachers in post of which only six
    are men.

The school had adopted some procedures relating
to the violence at school
  • 1. recognising the problem
  • 2. analysing the problem in depth (parents
    included)
  • 3. consultations (psychologists included)
  • 4. Evaluation
  • The school has good contacts with local police
    and the social care centre.
  • The parents board meets every two months. They
    give their opinions and suggestions on how to
    tackle violence and harassment in school.
  • School psychologists and special pedagogic school
    workers have individual and group meetings. The
    inclusion of these specialist staff was seen as
    an advantage to the prevention of violence in the
    school as they were well trained.

5
The head teacher underlined
  • the culture in Poland is that the students have
    more rights than the pupils therefore it is
    difficult to discipline and punish students who
    are being violent at school and there is little
    support from parents. The school needs to call
    on the police when they have serious acts of
    violence or harassment in the school. The media
    also creates a "rat race"- the school is good
    when its students have good test results - no
    word about safety. She reported that they do not
    have not enough tools to prevent difficulties
    when they arise in school.

Students
  • Girls found several suggestions
  • 1. anonymous boxes- where students can put the
    notes with the problems, questions for the school
    to deal with
  • 2. support group
  • 3. techniques for communication and personal body
    language courses.
  • The boys only came up with one solution and this
    was for the school to introduce courses on self-
    defence techniques.

Complex School No 14
  • It is a Primary and Junior school at one of the
    modern districts of Gdynia. The school is
    separated by primary and junior pupils and has
    995 pupils. It is the largest schools in Gdynia
    and has 131 teachers and 50 staff workers. There
    are 3 psychologists at the school.
  • The school had a good security system with safe
    doors where no strangers can enter the school
    without first seeing the caretaker.

8
A serious case
  • 1. They organized the individual psychologist
    care for the friends and other pupils and
    parents.
  • 2. At the beginning of the school year) they
    provided special courses for the teachers and
    students on how to behave in dangerous situations
    outside the school e.g. if somebody attracts you
    what to shout and where to go for help. The
    police and municipality police gave some lectures
    about dealing with strangers and how to keep safe
    when going to and from school. For example,
    walking nearby the forest, dark streets and
    avoiding being alone in the dark. The school also
    provided specialist workshops on cyber harassment
    for teachers and students and what to do if they
    receive offensive texts and email .

The police seal"
  • The kids who take part in that project prepare
    work on how to be safe in the street and at home.
    Every child gets the special blue seal- a toy and
    the orange jackets to be seen at night on the
    roads.
  • There were also posters on the walls with
    pictures showing how to behave safely in school.

10
National project "When you love you do not use
any violence- do not beat a child
  • It was promoted by the media for the adults to
    stop them from beating and being violent against
    their children. The School organized special
    workshops for parents and students. The parents
    have the possibility also of taking part in
    monthly lectures and workshops
  • How to deal with any difficult situations,
  • How to protect the child against drug dealers and
    strangers on the net.

11
Law education
  • The junior students have had the meetings with
    the lawyers to learn about the legal consequences
    in the case of any kind of harassment. They have
    learned about the different kinds of harassment
    and cyber-bullying with external specialists.
    This has been helpful to show the older pupils
    what the consequences could be if they were
    violent towards another pupil or staff.

School No 14 in Gdynia

Meeting with Local Authority
  • The group met with the Mayor of Gdynia, other
    Local Authority officials and representatives of
    the Solidarnosc union. There was a very good
    working relationship between the union and Local
    Authority in this City.
  • School funding in Gdynia is rather insufficient
    to sustain the education of all the pupils and
    students. They currently only receive one third
    of the budget for educating 30,000 pupils and
    employing 3,800 teachers.
