Today our mum from Life on the Frontline wants you to share your experiences of school exclusion.
As you may already know, from reading this post, Week 23, on Monday, Tall had a two day exclusion from school at the end of last week. Aware that there were some tests coming up in school, we tried very much to give him a supportive and calm time at home with a bit of school work thrown in. However he was very, very anxious about going back to school and by Sunday evening I could tell he was in a very high state of anxiety about the following morning.
He went back into school on Monday with really disastrous consequences, all of which I will share in next Monday’s Life on the Frontline post. This has now resorted to a much slower and lengthy integration for him back to school, also meaning he is at home for most of this week. I really want him to have as little stress as possible around returning to school. So these are my questions. Do you have experience of a child being excluded from school? What do you do with them whilst they are off school? How do you keep anxieties low around their return to school?
