We all know that the quality of relationships in schools are critical for both wellbeing and learning. Although common knowledge this is not always commonly practiced.

In her talk Sue Roffey will go beyond the rhetoric to look more closely at what positive relationships mean in practice, not just for teacher-student relationships but also across a whole school. How do the hundreds of interactions that take place every day promote trust, care, support and cooperation - even in challenging situations? Using real life examples Sue explores the emotional literacy that underpins how we think, what we say and what we do - with kids, colleagues, parents and management!
