Improving children's attainment, motivation, and self-esteem

Abstract

Psychological Services are committed to working with local authority colleagues to close the gap between the lowest achieving and attaining group of pupils and the rest of the school population. Children who do not experience success in school often become discouraged. They blame themselves, feel 'stupid', and lack motivation. This can mean that they avoid practising those very skills that they need in order to progress. This applies to a significant number of children. This project aimed to address this problem by changing the ways children think about themselves and the ways they explain their lack of achievement to themselves.
