Patterns of non-attendance

Provision and / or strategies:

  • Talk to parent carers to identify barriers of non-attendance.
  • Collaborate and plan with parents, to ensure consistency between the home and school / setting.
  • Think about ‘push and pull’ factors.
  • Consider accessing the West Sussex Emotional Based School Avoidance (EBSA) materials, as these can be useful diagnostic tools for early intervention.
  • Consider the impact of exclusions on individual attendance in the long run – will the child or young person learn that this behaviour enables them to go home to their safe space in their bedroom?
