Attachment for Teachers by Marie Delaney

The Essential Guide for Trainee Teachers and NQTs

Building Confidence and Skills for Working With the Challenging Effects of Attachment Difficulties on Behaviour and Learning

Every trainee teacher and NQT needs to know about the importance of attachment in schools. So many children and young people arrive in class every day who are unable to settle to learn. Many are coming from previous or current home environments which have not provided them with the necessary consistent security and reliable warmth for them to be relaxed, confident and trusting. Some have experienced trauma, loss, neglect and abuse. They communicate their distress through their challenging behaviour in school. What is needed first and foremost for such pupils of all ages is an authentic relationship of attachment with school staff who can get to know them, genuinely empathise and enable them to settle securely and begin to feel safe. Then, and only then, can the task of learning begin.

This handbook first explains succinctly why an understanding of attachment theory is vital for all teachers. It then provides practical examples of how a teacher can recognise what the pupil's behaviour is communicating and how the teacher can then effectively intervene to enable the pupil to settle to learn and the teacher achieve freedom to teach.
