Underachievement in school is a huge issue affecting almost all pupils at some point of their school career. Underachievement is a relative concept, affecting some pupils more seriously than others, but it can happen to anyone at any time, and to some pupils for the majority of their time in school. The challenge for teachers is that there are as many different reasons for pupils underachieving as there are pupils in school. Understanding and Tackling Underachievement: Whole-school Strategies to Meet the Needs of Vulnerable Children in Primary Schools will provide busy practitioners with universal strategies that will impact across the school, reaching all pupils and giving them the opportunity to make the most of their school careers. With insightful case studies, reflective questions and additional activities on CD-ROM, Understanding and Tackling Underachievement will ensure that your school has all the tools it needs to combat underachievement through understanding the underlying factors and implementing practical approaches and strategies. Understanding and Tackling Underachievement also addresses the issue of underachievement in relation to the particular needs of pupils coming from socially deprived backgrounds
