“When a Child Can’t go to School” – Factsheet from Enquire

Enquire have published a new factsheet – “When a child can’t go to school”.  Based, in part, on the revised Scottish Government Guidance on the education of children unable to attend school due to ill health, this factsheet also addresses other reasons a child may be off school.

It can be a distressing time for parents and carers if their child misses out on their education, particularly if it is linked to an illness or long-term condition.  This factsheet aims to provide information for staff working with families in this situation.
