Define Fine: Parent Peer Support for School Attendance Difficulties
is a parent/carer-led organisation set up in response to the growing number of children and young people who struggle with school attendance, including difficulties sometimes referred to as Emotionally Based School Avoidance, or School Refusal. This struggle may relate to unmet Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, diagnosed or suspected, bullying, trauma, physical or mental illness.
School attendance difficulties are poorly understood, are compounded by current challenges within the education and health systems, and can have severe consequences for both the child or young person and the wider family.
We have produced the following resource for families and also for professionals, based on relevant government policy and guidance http://definefine.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/NFISDefine-Fine-Schools-Guid...
Define Fine also offers support parents and carers through our private Facebook Group
