Overcoming Truancy

Price: £25.00
Age Range: KS3 KS4

Students explore and challenge the causes and effects of truancy using worksheets which develop ideas, strategies and practical solutions for avoidance and preventing recurrence.

Students consider:

  • a wide range of reasons for truancy, including self esteem, peer pressure and 'school phobia'
  • the effect of truancy on family and friends, teachers and welfare officers
  • longer term effects on employment, lifestyle and relationships
  • returning to school after a period of absence
  • the benefits of good attendance
  • positive aspects of their school
  • how they might change their school in order to reduce truancy

I downloaded this resource as I am a Learning Mentor in a Secondary school and we have issues that are arising concerning truancy. I use these resources to support group work or 1-1 I address this issue and explain to the students the importance of them being in school, the safety issue and what they have missed while truanting. Looking at the bigger picture and on who it affects.

Teacher Testing Report

A good idea: there is a wide range of materials available. The information is accessible to mixed ability classrooms.
