Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA)

What is Emotionally Based School Avoidance?

Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA) is a term used to describe children and young people (CYP) who experience challenges in attending school due to negative feelings (such as anxiety).  

EBSA is commonly associated with emotional and physical distress, and a reluctance to attend school, which can lead to reduced attendance and further anxiety regarding school.

What can I do if I am worried about my child not wanting to attend school?

Firstly, don't worry alone, we are here to help.  Just give us a call and ask to speak to Mrs Devi, our Welfare and Safeguarding Officer.

There is some useful information for parents about emotionally based school avoidance on the support services for education website.
