Attachment Aware Schools Programme Evaluation

The Attachment Aware Schools Programme was initially developed as a partnership between Bath Spa University, Bath and North East Somerset Council and the National College for Teaching and Leadership and a range of third sector organisations, attachment specialists and schools.

The Rees Centre evaluated the following programmes:

  • Bath and North East Somerset Council (October 2015-July 2016).
  • Leicestershire County Council (October 2016-July 2017)
  • Stoke on Trent (2016-2017)

All three local authorities engaged Kate Cairns Associates to deliver the programmes.

In Bath and NE Somerset, 25 school staff participated. Mainly teachers, they were from 16 schools (6 secondary, 7 primary, 1 middle and two special schools). In Leicestershire, staff from 24 schools participated – including one school offering alternative provision, three secondary schools, fifteen primary schools, one infant school and two junior schools – with Kate Cairns Associates delivering whole staff sessions in these schools. In Stoke, seven primary schools, three secondary schools and two special schools participated.
