Derbyshire Attachment Aware Schools Programme

 The attachment aware schools programme was designed to:

    • improve the teaching and learning conditions for children in care and all vulnerable learners in schools and settings
    • help to reduce the need for exclusions in school
    • develop a supportive network of Derbyshire schools that have innovative and excellent practice around vulnerable learners
    • produce a portfolio of good practice examples and other resources to share across the whole of Derbyshire’s school community and beyond
    • raise awareness of the issues and needs around attachment and trauma
    • consolidate good working relations between the newly formed Virtual School and all Derbyshire schools
    • bring about a new community of schools working with action research as their driver for school development
