Inhoud: The UK government has encouraged schools and local authorities to promote school attendance because of its associations with academic attainment and antisocial behaviour. Legislation makes school attendance a parental responsibility. This small-scale study collected data on parent-child interaction immediately prior to school absence to examine how such interaction influenced the development of attendance difficulties. Good and poor school attenders, of 12-13 years of age, were compared on quantifiable measures of their self-reported requests to be absent from school, their perceived parents' responses, self-reported whole-day and lesson truancy, and expected parental reaction to truancy. School absence requests were significantly more frequent among the poor attenders, who gained more absence and whose parents were inconsistent in their responses to the requests. Education social work/welfare services and school pastoral staff need well-formulated methods, backed by empirical research, if they are to work effectively with parents and young people and substantially raise their low attendance.
