About this course
A relational approach puts relationships at the heart of every aspect of school life. They help to create an environment where everyone feels that they belong, are safe, cared for and valued.
Recent research suggests that relating to pupils in a caring and compassionate way without judgement, respecting their rights, beliefs and abilities, is of huge benefit to them.
On this course, we will learn more about the evidence behind the approach and explore ways to work towards a whole-school approach to prioritising positive relationships, whilst exploring potential barriers that may exist.
