Student belonging is the feeling of fitting in, being valued, liked and respected within the classroom. Feeling a sense of belonging is important for all students to achieve their potential in regard to behaviour and their academic work. When students feel as though they belong and are a part of something, they are more likely to display positive behaviour and remain engaged and on-task . Teachers strengthen a sense of school belonging and emotional trust by building rapport with students through a variety of strategies, such as engaging with their interests.
