Being child centred is one of the core values of Educate Together schools. In December the staff examined their practice under a child centred lens. A noticeboard in the staff room prompted us to pause and reflect on our approach. At a staff meeting we discussed our understanding of child centeredness, how we can make small changes to improve our practice and explored the wonderful feedback from a group of children in the school. This group of children were from third class to sixth class. They formed a focus group and answered important questions about how they feel at school, how they are heard at school and how they think school could be better for them. Their feedback was and will continue to be pivotal in helping all the staff to become more reflective practitioners who place the child at the centre of everything they do.
