Understanding attachment
Thoughts from Maria Lloyd, Headteacher of Andrews' Endowed CE Primary School

Over the course of our careers most of us are lucky enough to teach a huge number of children, each one of them an entirely unique and amazing character.

During your long career, you will hopefully receive a significant amount of additional training and continue your own professional development journey. Every course brings new ideas to consider and adds to our bank of knowledge and skills, helping us to develop our roles and better support the children in our care.
The training our staff team have received on Attachment has been some of the most beneficial and thought provoking in recent years.  We particularly liked this publication produced by the National Children’s Bureau, called 'Understanding Why'.
We hope you find it helpful, and that it supports you in understanding the significance of attachment for your own learners.
