Emotional Security in the Classroom project

Emotional security (ES) as defined by the Boxall Profile, is a classroom trait that can be observed through a child’s investment in and care for their work, alongside the quality of their interaction with staff. Staff will receive training in a new academic curriculum and teacher resilience and TA impact will be maximised.

Pupil and staff data will be collected to answer the overarching research question ‘Can levels of ’emotional security’ in children attending the MBS be increased through adaptations made to the school curriculum and to teacher resilience?
