Stop treating school 'refusal' as truancy

Reason for signing

  • My daughter is currently not attending due to very high levels of anxiety. We are fortunate to have an amazing SENCO and an understanding school that marks her non-attendance as authorised whilst we all continue to work towards getting her what she needs. This is how it should be for everyone, not £800 of fines!!
