Where do you Stand?

Overview

Over a series of short sessions, pupils will have the opportunity to consider topical issues related to their school life. Pupils will consider the strength of arguments for and against different school policies before sharing and comparing their own opinion with that of their peers.   Each question is designed to be a stimulus for short discussion sessions with your class in which pupils can practise reasoning, listening and speaking skills.
