Circles, PSHE and Citizenship
Assessing the Value of Circle Time in Secondary School


April 2007 | 152 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

While circle time has flourished in primary schools, it has rarely been used by teachers of older students. Marilyn Tew, a recognized practitioner and trainer, has worked to establish the value of circle time at the secondary level. Using a five-year case study, this resource demonstrates how the program is developed involving both staff and students.

Offering a framework that can be followed or adapted by other secondary schools, the program includes:

  • Consultation with students
  • Choosing the topics for study
  • Lesson plans written in the circle format
  • Recommendations for links within the wider school community and other agencies

This resource is an invaluable guide and support for any secondary school interested in implementing a circle time program.
