Initiating change locally in bullying and aggression through the school environment

INCLUSIVE is a research trial funded by the National Institute of Health Research that is investigating the feasibility and acceptability of working with secondary schools to improve the school environment and introduce restorative justice approaches to improve student well-being and reduce aggression and bullying. Additional funding comes from the Big Lottery Fund and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

We are currently undertaking a pilot trial of the INCLUSIVE intervention in 8 schools in England which will run from September 2011 to Jun 2012.  

The pilot trial is registered with Current Controlled trials.  See
