Event description
How to support children and young people who struggle to attend school.

About this event

School refusal is fast becoming a problem in education that is widely misunderstood. Blame and responsibility is placed on the child, making the situation worse. So how can we work together, as parents and educators, to understand and improve school attendance in children and young people?

We are delighted to present a webinar on school 'refusal' where we will cover the following:

What is school 'refusal'? How we need to reframe this in order to understand it.

Early signs of school attendance difficulties and what they can tell us

School-based trauma and anxiety: what causes it and how it impacts children and young people

Blame culture: school blaming home, home blaming school

What does the law say?

What is the impact of fines and punishments?

Magical co-production - how the collaborative work between home and school can really help

Now, next and the future - how we can develop short, medium and long term goals to support and promote children and young people who experience difficulties in attending school (including when to apply for or amend an existing an EHCP or Statements)

Alternative options to consider and how to achieve them

As always we will be taking questions on the night, and welcome your interaction via the chat facility on ZOOM.
