Tish with Teachers: Creating a sense of belonging

• 12 min

In this podcast, Tish Feilden talks to writer and teacher, Clare Deal about why a sense of belonging is so critical to children's development, and how we can foster this in schools. In a recent TES article, Clare Deal found that according to 2020 research, one in four young people feel they do not “belong” in school - a figure that is rising. This is a problem, the report finds, because a sense of belonging has been linked to increased motivation, higher attainment and reductions in absenteeism, as well as other positive social outcomes. Young people who “experience a sense of exclusion from school”, meanwhile, are more likely to “seek ‘belongingness’ elsewhere”. In this podcast Tish Feilden talks to Clare how we can foster a sense of belonging.
