I have a year 10 pupil (girl) who is so disengaged with school and I’m need of advice on how to get her happy about school and build a relationship with her. I have returned from maternity leave and taken on this tutor group on return and I am part time so only see them twice a week. I am trying to build relationships but it is tricky. When speaking to her, she is angry and hates school. She hates the rules and hates being constantly called out by other teachers on her behaviour, attitude and uniform. She is an able student but is falling behind because of her attitude. Can anyone suggest anything I can do to get her engaged with me, to build a relationship? Her relationship with Mum isn’t good and Mum isn’t happy with the school either so calls home etc won’t work in the short term. Any help would be gratefully received! Thank you!
