The 'Whole School Quality Circle Time' model developed by Jenny Mosley describes a democratic and practical school management system which addresses social, emotional and behavioural issues through a systematic approach. Its features reflect closely the philosophy, guidance and practice embodied in the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) curriculum resources.
This model helps schools create the ethos advocated in this resource, by supporting them to create an environment in which social, emotional and behavioural skills can be developed.
The model is designed to build a sense of school community. It advocates the setting up of circles for all groups involved in the school, linked to each other by representatives. Such representatives from the individual circles can take school improvement issues to the regular ‘policy maker’ meetings. Thus the whole school becomes a ‘listening school’ in which all can influence the school via a transparent democratic process” National Primary Strategy, Guidance, Curriculum and Standards, Ref: DfES 1378-2005G pg 54.
"I would be most grateful if you could pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation to Jenny for all her hard work when she visited us here at Stopsley. Everyone was inspired by her work and we are in a wonderfully strong position for moving forward thanks to her."– Jackie Chidwick, Headteacher, Stopsley Community Primary School
"...many many thanks for delivering such an inspiring, captivating and thought provoking INSET day at Orchard Infant School... your words and highly amusing yet poignant anecdotes have provided a wealth of discussion with all our staff on how we can develop and sustain high levels of well-being and behaviour throughout our school community. So far we are revising our behaviour rules and guidelines to make it even more consistent across the school; developing lunchtimes to incorporate the fun games and activities modelled to us during the INSET day. Thus far the impact has been significant; with happy engaged children at playtime and as a result a huge decline in any behaviour issues."– Jane West, Deputy Headteacher, Orchard Infant School, Dibden Purlieu
“People matter most. If that is so, then how is this reflected in the way we value and give time to nurture dreams, share problems and celebrate successes? As a Headteacher of three very different schools in my career so far, I have found that ‘Quality Circle Time’ as an approach, builds within a learning community an effective framework for the development of these essential social and emotional skills. ‘Golden Time’ for me fosters a unique and tailored reward system that identifies good learner behaviours and celebrates the individual success of all achievers, whilst quietly challenging those who are yet to catch on. As a Headteacher I have found these systems to be of fundamental value in developing the staff and children in my care. If people really do matter, then curriculum time spent effectively in this way, reaps rewards above and beyond the classroom itself and long into the future.”– Mr. Richard Vaughan, Headteacher of An Phu Primary Campus, British International School, Ho Chi Minh City
