What to do if your child doesn’t enjoy school

School is a world of support, education and the way that our children grow into successful people, yet it can also be an overwhelming experience for kids. When your child is showing signs that they don’t enjoy school, or they begin to refuse going to school, so does a big cause of concern.

We take a look at some ways to encourage your child to enjoy their time in school with the help of this grammar school in Wirral.

Ask them why they don’t want to go to school

Figure out directly from them what’s troubling them and making them refuse to go to school. Is there something at school that’s worrying them, like bullying culture or an argument with a friend that upset them? Or is it related to a certain struggle in school? It could also just be that your child isn’t feeling up to going to school.


Learn from them what makes them worried about going to school or if they’re just having a down day. From there you can assess what you’d like to do. Talking to your child’s teachers might also be an option if you feel like your child isn’t being forthcoming with you.

Chat to the school about your concerns

Your child’s teachers see them the most throughout the week, so it could be a conversation you need to have with them to assess how your child is performing. They can tell you if your child’s struggling in lessons or if their attitude has changed in the classroom.

Understand your child’s mental health

Children can also have mental health days if they’re feeling really unwell and are in need of support. But you should also enforce to them that they can’t always have days off of school, which is why you can employ a rule where they’re only allowed a certain number of days off each term. It can motivate your child to help with you in ways to get them motivated at school and help their mental health at the same time.
