What are the Essential Agreements?
Essential Agreements is an exercise of collective construction in which the parents of the Colegio Colombo Británico were invited by the Psychology team in order to agree on fundamental aspects of their parental role so that they could contribute to the protection of their children in social and emotional processes. Parents were encouraged by a common interest and concern for the ways in which their children relate to the different experiences in the search of a satisfaction that can put them at risk and that are present throughout their social life at school.
In this site you will have access to all seven agreements. Let them be a guide to nurture ever stronger bonds between families and the school.
