School avoidance and anxiety: the forgotten child

09 October 2021 12:30 - 13:30

This presentation will focus on the increasing numbers of young people out of education or school refusing due to high levels of anxiety. We will discuss case studies of young people who have been in both mainstream and specialist settings and have missed prolonged periods of education. We will then go on to highlight how the use of key relationship building and how a flexible approach can support re-engagement. We will provide practical advice and examples of how this works to support young people in a variety of educational settings.
