In Spring of 2016, Zero Tolerance undertook research to establish what work is currently being carried out with young children aged 5-8 on encouraging healthy relationships, and determine its content. We received one hundred and fifty-nine responses from teachers (18%), parents (77%) and those with responsibility for early primary school children (21%). We asked respondents a variety of questions about their awareness of current resources, what influences they felt were most significant for children’s learning and what positive change in this area could look like.
The report below provides a summary of the key findings, discussion of key themes and makes recommendations for policy makers and education professionals in this field
