NEU launches research on 'a sense of belonging' and its role in positive learning and behaviour

The NEU’s ‘Belonging’ research highlights that where school leaders developed an intentional approach focused on changing learning and teaching, that this led to reshaping expectations and the culture of the school by all.
The NEU’s ‘Belonging’ research highlights that staff retention is far greater where teachers know that they can make a difference and they have a strong sense of personal and professional agency in their school.
‘Belonging’ is that sense of being somewhere you can be confident that you will fit in and be safe in your identity: a feeling of being at home in a place.
