Interpersonal listening between adult and pupil is privileged on a daily basis, whether or not the pupil wishes to express him/herself in class council. This help gives each person an additional, more confidential means of expressing their concerns and questions. He/she can be sure that he/she will be listened to attentively, without any judgement in return. It is a privileged time to help the child to reflect on his/her problems and put solutions in place.
Sponsorship: The pupils can also appeal to their sponsors. On arrival at Ecole Active, each new student is sponsored by one of his/her older peers. The sponsors commit themselves to the new pupil in order to facilitate his/her integration and his/her life in the school throughout the school year. The sponsorship ceremony is one of the highlights of the school camp in the autumn.
Mediation: older students can become mediators as soon as they reach 5P. Following a specific training course, they are recognised in the school as people who can help to resolve minor conflicts between children.
