Questions for discussion​

Reflecting on your own setting, consider the following:-

  • How well do we ensure that all children feel safe, healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, respected, responsible and included?
  • How well do children and young people show consideration for others and demonstrate positive behaviour and relationships?
  • How well do we listen to and involve children and young people in making decisions about their wellbeing, their lives and their future?
  • Have we successfully established an inclusive learning environment? How do we know?
  • How do we ensure there is an ethos and culture of inclusion, participation and positive relationships across the whole learning community?
