Sense of belonging is a student's perception of being accepted, valued and included in their school setting by their peers and others in the school.

A recent review of research suggests that teachers can support students' sense of belonging by:

  • managing the classroom effectively
  • leading by example inside and outside of the classroom
  • developing positive relationships
  • being a strong advocate for students
  • helping students to develop positive friendships
  • addressing bullying.
