The goal of the Jade Speaks Up programme (JSU) is to deliver a relatively small and short-term intervention which would give Year 5-8 school children tools to develop trusting relationships and strategies to keep themselves safe from violence. The planned result is that children will feel safer and more resilient and that teachers will find the programme a most effective resource around interpersonal relationship learning. This report is an evaluation of the 1st year of a pilot project aimed at relationship and safety teaching to level 7 and 8 children in 8 New Zealand Schools in Auckland and the Bay of Plenty.
