Negative feedback or poor results in class cause more than a fifth of primary school pupils to ‘switch off’ from the lesson, TokensFor research suggests. 

A survey asking parents to describe how their child would react in such circumstances found that 22.8% believe their offspring would simply lose interest in the subject. 

The data, gathered by school tokens manufacturer TokensFor, also found that almost 20% of children would be self-critical and lose confidence, while one in 10 would believe they were right and the teacher was wrong.
