Jenny Mosley's quality circle time model involves establishing an on-going, timetabled process of circle-meetings for adults and children. As a basis for teaching relationship skills, enhancing self-esteem and building a positive behaviour management and anti-bullying policy, circle time should not only increase confidence and qemotional intelligenceq in pupils, but should also contribute towards a positive whole-school ethos. This classic text provides a rationale, framework and whole-school model for quality circle time specifically for secondary schools and further education colleges. Fully revised and updated, the authors offer over 100 activities and practical strategies to help build teachers' confidence and circle time skills. The book aims to enable teachers to sustain this approach within their SEAL syllabus, tutorial time, subject teaching, or as part of their work with pupils with special educational needs.Learning from SEAL In the 2001 white paper on secondary schools, the Government pronounced its goal of a#39;strengthening the emotional ... ofpeer interaction; better Ofsted ratings for behaviour; lower levels ofpersistent absence; and higher attain- ment in KS2 SATs and GCSEs.a#39; (ibid: 4) ... herea#39;, is there likely to be any significant impact on student behaviour, wellbeing or attainment (Tew aamp; Park, 2013).
