Why do children in poverty in the UK perform less well in school than their middle class peers? This talk examines the problem as it is understood by British politicians and policymakers: as a result of a lack of discipline and aspiration. Against this a more complex explanation for educational underachievement is offered, which rests on the concept of a set of binds, or barriers, which interrupt learning. These insights reveal children's school lives to be highly challenging, despite their ingenuity and effort in trying to overcome the challenges that they face.

Jayne will give a short talk on the role and remit of educational psychologists and the Educational Psychology Service in Jersey. She will then present the background to, and content of, training for primary school staff on anxiety, which has recently been developed and piloted. This is pitched at the level of awareness raising, with ideas for supporting the development of resilience and coping skills and supporting students with emerging anxiety issues. There will then be time for questions and discussion.
