In England, more than 93,000 11-15 year olds have self-excluded from school due to bullying. However, their experiences and the support they need are largely unknown.
Our researchers Dr Niamh O’Brien and Anna Dadswell have worked with young people alongside Red Balloon, a charity that provides educational and therapeutic support to young people after self-exclusion. They’ve asked the important questions about students’ experiences of self-exclusion and what might have prevented it. Join them to find out what they’ve discovered.
Presented against the backdrop of the student voice, discussing what this means for research, including: what do we mean by involvement, and is value added through involving the student?
