Our brave Yr 7s from John Roan demonstrated their excellent listening and supportive skills when we discussed what we need from each other in order for us to be able to work at our best.

There were some very articulate and clear reasons given for why we need the things we need. And between them, the pupils agreed that respecting someone means treating them the way you would like to be treated yourself; that it is perfectly possible to respect someone you don’t like; that you ┬áneed honesty in order to be able to build trust; and that you can’t really achieve what you want to achieve unless you are helping everyone else in the group to work at their best, which is why you need kindness, friendship, affirmation, positivity and co-operation, at the very least.
