Welcome Equally Safe at School has been developed for secondary schools to help them take a whole school approach to preventing gender-based violence, with staff and students working together with a shared understanding and commitment to equality and safety for all.
Equally Safe at School (ESAS) helps schools make progress towards the Curriculum for Excellence health and wellbeing outcomes, Getting It Right For Every Child and the Scottish Government’s Equally Safe strategy to prevent and eradicate violence against women and girls. It has been developed by Rape Crisis Scotland in partnership with the University of Glasgow.
You can find out more about ESAS on these pages, and schools can register for an account to access the tools and resources - find out how here.
This brief video gives a powerful account of sexual harassment in school. It conveys key insights from the pilot phase of ESAS and is designed to encourage discussion on the issue.
The video was commissioned by the University of Glasgow and produced by Media Co-op, with an advisory group of young people.
