This book shows how building a child's circle of friends can increase their sense of belonging whilst reducing the incidence of disruption. The approach contributes to improved classroom performance and strengthens friendships, personal relationships and growth. The book explains what exactly a circle of friends is, what it is for, how it is set up and how it helps. It includes outcomes and stories of real circles of friends both in primary and secondary school, and even photocopiable handouts for use in school and other settings.
