What is R Time?
R Time, or relationships to improve education, is a structured programme for schools that develops positive relationships between children. It does this by creating an environment that supports and enhances good manners, attainment, and citizenship. It can be a part of Healthy Schools work in primary schools and secondaries (see note below regarding Negotiate). It makes a powerful contribution to SEAL and complements Circle Time. It is underpinned by a high expectation of good behaviour, first class manners and respect for others. Read more about these benefits in R Time for creating effective relationships.
