Emotionally Based School Non-Attendance

Wolverhampton’s Emotionally Based School Non-attendance (EBSNA) Pathway was developed to support schools within the city to support pupils whose school attendance is a concern due to emotion-based factors. This may be linked to their individual emotional wellbeing and mental health needs, their home life, their school experiences, or a combination of all of these.

Please look through the EBSNA resources if you think your child may be struggling with emotionally based school non-attendance. The resources will give you a guide about what the EBSNA pathway should look like in schools and helpful strategies and support networks for you to access.

Here you can find the EBSNA pathway alongside the ‘Graduated Approach to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Guidance’.
