Upcoming Deanery events:
Connecting with schools and supporting learning
Research project running until the end of April
A chance for your school to take part in research examining how connected students your students feel to school – and the implications of this for their attendance and engagement. The Research is being conducted by the University of Oxford with students in Years 8 or 9 who are asked to complete an online questionnaire about their sense of belonging. The research team will share the findings with the school, helping them to reflect on its implications and how they might seek to remove any of the barriers that are identified. For further details contact the principal researcher Jenni Ingram
