Challenging Ideas about Disaffection

Challenging Ideas About Disaffection

Maximising policy and practice impact

The purpose of this project has been to build on and develop the findings from research exploring the experiences of secondary aged pupils at risk of school exclusion.  Two core resources have been produced as an outcome of a co-ordinated programme of knowledge exchange with a range of young people, practitioners and organisations.

A policy directed ‘Manifesto for Learning’ written and produced by young people marginalised from mainstream education.

A practitioner directed ‘Reflexive Toolkit’ to prompt and facilitate critical, reflexive awareness among teachers and other professionals working with pupils at risk of school exclusion.

This is an ESRC funded project, grant number RES-061-23-0073.
