Our vision for Schools Linking
Belonging isn’t just a feeling, it’s an action and a way of living in the world too.
We support young people to explore identity in creative, active and participatory ways and through linking with people who are in some way different to them.
Belonging is a constantly evolving feeling, it isn’t static. So we help young people develop skills that inspire them to be continually enquiring and curious about their own and other people’s identity.
The training, support and framework that we’ve created and continually adapt empowers teachers and schools to enable children and young people to experience connection and belonging as part of their education and beyond.
The students value making friends with someone who is different to them, they will do that with less fear moving forward. It de-mystifies the ‘other’ and breaks down that ‘otherism’.Natasha Boyce, secondary school teacher
