Traversing young people’s experiences of Life on the Rock, emerged the theme of respect. Young people’s experiences of life in Jersey demonstrated both respect and disrespect from both adults and their peers. As an underpinning value of human rights, and therefore of children’s rights, this theme was sometimes referenced explicitly, but frequently transpired implicitly in young people’s experiences as one which pervaded their relationships. As Sophie explained, she felt respected by some staff, and not by others, and by some students and not by others. This theme will focus on the areas of children’s lives where respect was found lacking, but acknowledges that this was not all children’s experience, nor all adult’s treatment of young people in Jersey.
