FOR BOARDING SCHOOLS
“We were looking for a program that would engage our staff and build on their safety knowledge and skills. After completing the SOS ThreeSixty Boundary Training, so many of my colleagues came up to me and said how strong and effective it was. They felt informed and were able to relate directly to the content and apply it in their everyday interactions with students. This training brings home important messages and gave us such a good vocabulary and framework to sit down together and have meaningful discussions within our school about connecting with our students in a caring and healthy way.”

“SOS ThreeSixty’s Boundary Training for Schools: Creating a Culture of Safety is engaging and has really upleveled our understanding of this important material. The course is to the point, relevant, easy to digest, and well put together. As a school focused on social and emotional learning, it is important to recognize students’ feelings and create meaningful connections that are appropriate. The course clearly provides these guidelines and we will be making it part of our yearly training program.”
Effective and appropriate boundaries between staff and students are fundamental to having a safer school, where everyone in your community shares the same understanding of their responsibilities.
When educating staff about safety, policies, and training must reflect a school’s culture. The information provided needs to be delivered in a way that is easily understood by all staff – teaching and non-teaching – and leaves no opportunity for misunderstanding.
The culture of your school is threaded throughout all activities in your community. Boundary Training should be no different. The training should be relatable and specific, to address any situation that may come up within your school.
The SOS ThreeSixty, Inc. program helps make your school safer and will engage the school community in a culture of student safety.
