This short report is an overview of innovative strategies in 30 schools which are attempting to tackle the serious problem of pupil disaffection, and also covers what educational professionals see as some of the main causes of truancy and disruptive behaviour.
It is the first in a short series of publications from a project entitled 'School Attendance, Truancy and Exclusions' which is funded by NFER's Membership Programme.
Written as a discussion paper and a reference document for those planning school-based initiatives in this area, it should be particularly relevant to senior school managers, LEA personnel, GEST coordinators and EWS staff.
