Early years: Patterns of non-attendance

  • Talk to parents to identify barriers of non-attendance.
  • Think about ‘push and pull’ factors.
  • In reception classes, 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 children learn that this behaviour enables them to go home to their safe space in their bedroom?
