Truancy and Underachievement

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by SophieC21, Feb 7, 2012.

  1. I am currently undergoing some research on teacher's views on underachievement and truancy in primary schools in the UK, and I would love some help from any current or retired teachers, supply teachers or headteachers at primary school level. Whether you have/are experiencing cases of underachievement or truancy in your school, I would appreciate any feedback or comments that you may have, your knowledge would be valuable to my research. No names will be asked, simply your experiences! The questionnaire will take around ten minutes, and your time would be greatly appreciated. http://ess.ntu.ac.uk/sutton/formfiles/n0249553/primaryschool.htm

  3. Hi Sophie
    I'm no longer in primary but one problem I encountered in the summer term was "going away to the caravan". Many of our families had caravans out of London and went there at weekends in the summer. This wouldn't have been a problem but for the fact a few of them left on a Friday lunchtime and didn't return until Monday lunchtime thereby missing 1 day a week for most of the summer term. Needless to say these were not the most successful children in the school and now I suspect would be dealt with more seriously.
